Gabriela Read

New strategy concentrates on the diagnosis to at-risk groups and the handout of antiretroviral medications.

The incidence, according to statistical data, had been diminishing during the previous years until settling at 0.8 percent — a figure higher than the average in the region that stands at 0.4 percent — after years of a mainly preventive approach.see more
