HIV infection and AIDS still remains one of biggest health concerns around the world and there are many organizations and people working to come up with a stable cure for it. In 2014, there have been many groundbreaking researches that have helped people to stay alive and prevent HIV infection and transmission. Some results show weakening of AIDS over a time and that is a good sign for many health experts. In 2014, GlaxoSmithKline and Jansen worked together to come up with monthly injection treatment that are better than daily pills to prevent HIV infection and transmission.

In another research, Rockefeller University researchers have claimed that broadly-neutralizing antibodies that are actually proteins that neutralize multiple strains of HIV and therefore it can help to suppress the level of HIV in the body. School Professor Todd Allen that runs his own lab at the Ragon Institute of Massachusetts General Hospital, MIT and Harvard has used genome sequencing to come up with vaccines that can protect humans from HIV infection. Another international clinical trial sponsored by the National Institutes of Health claim that they have come up with a three-drug regimen to prevent mother-to-baby transmission and to ensure that the HIV infection rate of newborn babies decline considerably.
