Staff from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) are working towards a better future for people living with HIV and preventing new infections. Work on HIV at the School covers clinical research, social and anthropological research, mathematical modelling, intervention evaluation, health system analysis, cost-benefit and effectiveness analysis, work on the structural drivers of HIV infection and transmission and much more. The breadth of research on HIV being conducted by our academics with our partners across the world showcases the multi-disciplinary strength of our faculty and of the school itself. By drawing expertise, skills and methods from biology, chemistry, epidemiology, economics and anthropology, staff at LSHTM can approach HIV from a multitude of angles, pool resources and explore multiple perspectives on one of the biggest global health issues of our time. The Director of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, Professor Peter Piot, says: "It might seem far-fetched to call for ‘Zero new HIV infections. Zero discrimination. Zero AIDS-related deaths’, but it is important to imagine what a world after AIDS might look like, and how we can attain it, even if we know it might take many more decades to do so."
