During the 80’s a group of scientists at McGill University and I started a company called Medicorp in Montrea,l who became known for being one of the first makers of AIDS tests and who also developed and AIDS treatment called Passive Immunotherapy.

At that time, it was very hard to promote massive HIV testing, because there were no treatments for HIV AIDS. Now with new treatments there´s hope for HIV infected patients and at the Clinton Global Initiative actor Chris Tucker and others announced a program to promote HIV testing.

Whatever there are treatments or not (most of the treatments are too expensive for poor in developing countries).The test should be done, so that people infected know it and become very careful not infect other people.
This can help to slow the HIV spreading.

See you !
