The RFTCA is a scientific-based non-profit focusing more on an actual cure for HIV/AIDS rather than treatment and prevention. RFTCA’s mission is to accelerate a worldwide cure for all those in need, regardless of ability to pay.
The non-profit Research Foundation to Cure AIDS (RFTCA) proposes a charitable biotechnology effort outlined below to develop a worldwide cure for HIV/AIDS to be made available and affordable for all those in need. The cure of the Berlin Patient1as well as the recent cure of the London Patient point the way toward a broadly-applicable cure for Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). President Trump’s pledge to end the AIDS epidemic indicates the government’s commitment to addressing AIDS. In addition, new data about the limitations of treatment and prevention methods, including PrEP, suggest that any approach that is based solely on existing tools will prove inadequate.
RFTCAbelieves that the development of a cure based on the science underlying the cures of the Berlin Patient and the London Patient should be added to ongoing efforts to address AIDS. RFTCA is a U.S. not-for-profit organization that holds a perpetual worldwide license to cellular biotechnology that holds promise to develop a cure for HIV/AIDS. RFTCA proposes the biotechnology effort outlined below to develop a cure for HIV/AIDS and to make it available and affordable for all those in need.
