Mapping Pathways is a multi-national project to develop and nurture a research-driven, community-led global understanding of the emerging evidence base around the adoption of antiretroviral-based prevention strategies to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The evidence base is more than results from clinical trials - it must include stakeholder and community perspectives as well.

Cipla launches HIV/AIDS treatment kit at Rs 158New Delhi: Drug major Cipla on Tuesday said it has launched 'Qvir', a four-drug kit priced at Rs 158 per kit to be used for treating HIV/AIDS. The kit consists of two tablets packaged together in one strip which represents a single day's treatment, Cipla said in a statement.

Commenting on the introduction Cipla Chairman and Managing Director YK Hamied said: "While we are committed to making drugs affordable and accessible, we also endeavour to have more options for HIV infected patients, which are potent, effective, patient-friendly and easy to take".
