3TC against HIV-AIDS

Mark Wainberg's research projects (McGill University) on 3TC against HIV-AIDS.

Working with his team, he worked on the development of 3TC, which is now the most-prescribed anti-AIDS medication in the world.

Tritherapy plays a decisive role in the survival of tens of thousands of people with AIDS around the world.

As president of the International AIDS Society between 1998 and 2000, he ensured that developing countries also had access to tritherapy. His goal: a treatment available to everyone.
