Canada and Gates Foundation take lead in worldwide fight against HIV, AIDS
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced recently that his nation will become a leader in the global fight against HIV and AIDS. Canada is allied in its fight with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which held a joint press conference with Prime Minister Harper. One of the focuses in Canada's HIV/AIDS initiative is at the Infectious Disease Research Centre at Laval University, in the work of Dr. Michael Bergeron.
Dr. Bergeron founded the center in 1974 and has become a world leader in the international effort to combat HIV and AIDS. In recent years, literally hundreds of leading researchers have gathered around Dr. Bergeron to work with him to find effective treatments and, hopefully, a cure for this terrible disease.
