Anthony Fauci

“For years there was a tension between whether we should put resources into [HIV] prevention or into treatment. It was an unnecessary but real tension. Now we know that every time you treat someone you actually prevent that person from infecting someone else.”

Anthony S. Fauci is director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health. He specializes in the study of infectious diseases, was one of the first researchers to study HIV/AIDS, and has made pioneering contributions to the understanding, control, and treatment of HIV disease.
