Men's Health Network on National Survey

The Second Annual National Health Survey by PhRMA provides some valuable insights into what people are thinking – and doing – about their health.  One of the key findings is that over half of Americans, including 55% of men, are paying more attention to their health than they were a few years ago.  This is an encouraging trend that reflects greater general health awareness in recent years.

Geoffrey Garin on PhRMA National Survey

When asked about the link between vaccines and autism, an alarming 25% of Americans and 30% of parents believe that vaccines can cause autism in young children, according to our Second Annual National Health Survey for PhRMA. This is striking in that it comes despite reputable authorities like the CDC and the Mayo Clinic clearly stating that there is no link between vaccines and autism.

Where There’s A Will

We are at a deciding moment in the trajectory of the AIDS epidemic in the United States.  As a result of recent scientific advances, we have something that just a few years ago, we couldn’t even imagine—the promise of an AIDS free generation.  We actually have the tools to end the AIDS epidemic, at least in the U.S.  We have better diagnostic tools, better surveillance tools, better treatment tools, and better prevention tools.

Travis Sherer: What are you excited about in the fight against HIV/AIDS?

Submitted by Emily on

Founded in 1982 in direct response to the AIDS epidemic, GLMA has long been involved in issues related to HIV and AIDS.  Although progress has been challenging at times, there is a lot right now to be hopeful about. Significant advances in the treatment and prevention of HIV have led us to an exciting place where we are able to discuss the potential for an end to the epidemic. Condom use, antiretroviral therapies, microbicides, PreP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) and PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) provide a wide range of tools available help prevent the transmission of HIV.
