AIDS 2016 - Are older women forgotten in the fight against HIV?

Worldwide, more than 17 million people are on treatment for HIV infection but about 20 million HIV-infected people are still untreated. An article in the Lancet suggests this issue willl need to be dealt with at the 2016 World AIDS Conference in Durban in July along with the basics of HIV prevention.  The article highlights the urgent need related to young women but fails to mention the invisible need among older women.
