Description:
The Report of the National AIDS Strategy Committee (NASC) in 1992 was set against the prediction that Ireland and the rest of the world faced an AIDS epidemic. Indications were that the incidence of HIV would continue to grow. Nations of the developed world have seen a plateauing of incidence of cases and a move to a situation where, for a lot of individuals, AIDS and HIV infection arc becoming chronic illnesses. We are faced with many challenges, however, in relation to HIV/AIDS. There is still no cure for this illness. Highly Active Anti retroviral treatment (HAART) had a dramatic impact on the overall health and well being of people with HIV, but there is a global pandemic, with millions of people, particularly in the developing world, unable to access any form of treatment. Some people on treatment do not respond to this treatment. Vaccine clinical trials have been ongoing since HIV was first identified, hut an effective vaccine has not yet been developed. In Ireland, as in other parts of the developed world, real progress has been made since 1992. The reports of the four Sub-Committees which have been working to implement the national strategy bear evidence this and it is encouraging to note that virtually all of the recommendations of those Sub-Committees have been implemented and have been supplemented by further actions.
