(Feb. 24) -- The Holy Grail of AIDS research has long been the development of a vaccine to halt the spread of the virus. But what if, using only the medicines we already have right now, we could eliminate AIDS within the next 40 years? According to Dr. Brian Williams, an AIDS researcher for the South African Center for Epidemiological Modeling and Analysis, it is possible -- we just need to think bigger.

Of course such a plan would never work in the USA where people won't allow themselves to be forcibly tested and treated under most circumstances.

To make such a regimen available to at-risk groups and others who wanted it would be more workable.

Sadly less than 100% compliance dooms such a mass program to failure. And even is South Africa mandates it successfully, there are hundreds of nations that won't.
