“Getting to Zero” One Patient at a Time: HIV Prevention, Screening, and Treatment in Primary Care Practices

Despite major advances in the control of HIV in the US, “Getting to Zero” (the reduction of HIV transmission to negligible rates) remains elusive, especially among men-who-have-sex-with-men (MSMs). Until we develop an effective vaccine to prevent HIV infection, the strategies upon which we must rely are behavioral (encouraging personal protective practices), and medical (medical prophylaxis, screening, and retroviral suppression).
