The world has entered the most exciting era in science, says Quarraisha Abdool Karim, a leading AIDS researcher. Despite the world being off track to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030, South Africa’s Abdool Karim says there are now a wide range of options available for women and men to prevent HIV infection.  

 Abdool Karim tells Africa Science Focus that the COVID-19 and AIDS pandemics have shown that no one is an island. She tells reporter Dhashen Moodley that while differences of opinion are a fundamental part of science, communities need to work together and build trust to beat the biggest health challenges facing the world today.
