Experts concerned that HIV, AIDS may be poised for a comeback

The advent of powerful drugs in the mid-1990s brought remarkable gains in survival for HIV patients who had access to the medications.
But a team of experts now warns that the global HIV pandemic continues and is at risk of expanding, given the worrisome global rise of HIV resistance to antiretroviral (ART) medications.
“Resistance levels have been found to be highest in ART-exposed infants and children,” he added. “Which is a real concern, since children are already among the least-treated age group in many developing countries.”
