When considering the heritage from our founding companies, we can proudly say that we have been involved in the development of effective treatments for HIV/AIDS from the beginning.

Our scientists and researchers are dedicated to discovering innovative new approaches to improve outcomes for people living with HIV. We are committed to treating, preventing and, hopefully one day, curing HIV.

Since the advent of highly active antiretroviral therapy HIV has become a long-term health condition, as many people living with HIV with access to treatment are now living longer, healthier lives than before. However, Positive Perspectives study results indicate that many people living with HIV still aspire to treatments that have even less impact on quality of life.

The needs of people living with HIV change over time, and we‘re exploring new ways of treating and preventing HIV through new mechanisms of action and drug delivery.

We have a number of potential medicines in development for the treatment and prevention of HIV.

With significant progress made in the fight against HIV, how do we make sure that clinically proven tools are implemented into real-world settings?

It’s been 40 years since the first diagnosed case of HIV/AIDS. Since then, we have come a long way in HIV treatment and care. Thanks to advances in science and innovation, people living with HIV have options for effective treatment that mean they can expect to live long and healthy lives. This progress is significant; however, we know we have more to do.

To lift the substantial burdens of daily treatment and social stigma associated with HIV, a cure is essential to accomplishing our goal of ending the HIV epidemic. With this goal in mind, we are in pursuit of a cure for HIV.

Collaboration is the key to finding solutions to HIV challenges – and it’s at the heart of what we do at our HIV research facility in Branford, Connecticut.
