This is what AIDS look like 25 years ago, there was no cure. Treatment was limited. The diagnosis ... a death sentence. Two American doctors, Eric Goosby and Anthony Fauci, were there at the beginning and are still working to stop this disease.
25年前艾滋病是不可治愈的,治疗方法很有限,一旦确诊便意味着死刑。美国医生艾瑞克·古斯比和安东尼·弗契为此研究了多年,目前仍在寻找治疗的办法。

Dr. Fauci heads AIDS research at the National Institutes of Health. Under his guidance, we now have a better understanding of AIDS. We know how to keep it from spreading, and we have treatments that have transformed AIDS into a chronic disease.
弗契是国立卫生研究院艾滋病研究的负责人,在他的指导下,我们目前能更好地了解艾滋病。我们知道如何阻止艾滋病蔓延,能将艾滋病转化为慢性病。

"We can, in the reasonable future, look forward to an AIDS free generation. That's an important impact that has come from a number of resources, but predominately from the research at NIH," he stated.
“在可知的未来,我们可以预见到一个不再感染艾滋病的一代人。这种重要的结果来自大量的资料,不过主要来自国立卫生研究院的研究。”

Ambassador Eric Goosby M.D, who heads the Office of Global Health Diplomacy at the U.S. Department of State, has helped developing countries build clinics and set up systems to treat AIDS. Dr. Goosby says these countries are taking leadership roles in health care planning and the talk is now about treating other infectious diseases as well as chronic diseases like high blood pressure. Private groups such as the Ford Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation have also provided critical support.
艾瑞克·古斯比博士大使是美国国务院全球卫生外交办公室负责人,他帮助发展中国家开班诊所,设立治疗艾滋病的系统。古斯比说这些国家在医疗计划方面处于领导地位,目前的重点是治疗其他感染性疾病,以及诸如高血压这样的慢性病。诸如福特基金会和比尔和梅林达基金会这样的私人组织也提供了关键支持。
