Management of the AIDS epidemic and local/global use of Chinese medicine

Abstract : My article is in two parts, the first of which seeks to contextualise the subject in the framework of the major realignment of health policies in 2004. The second part deals with the integration of TCM in therapies and research on HIV. This process, in its conceptual and operational modes, is concrete evidence of the "biomedicalisation" of TCM that accelerated in the 1990s. In the adaptation of existing and recommended treatments on an international level, combined treatments in biomedicine and TCM are the object of clinical research and practice. -Based on analysis of a number of publications and observations, I will give examples of clinical tests aimed at the scientific certification of AIDS treatments in the wider context of R&D in TCM.
