Congratulations to the SEARCH investigators and the entire SEARCH Collaboration on the recent publication of our Phase I findings "HIV Testing and Treatment with the Use of a Community Health Approach" in the New England Journal of Medicine. In conjunction with the other 2 published trials—we know that Universal test and treat works—and can reduce incidence and mortality. And we showed in SEARCH that a multi-disease approach provides added community health benefits. We also know that we will need more than test and treat-- alone it is not enough and that is why we continue important work in the SEARCH study. This publication adds to the over 50 papers that have been published by the SEARCH Collaboration in the past few years.
