It happens most every night. Your head hits the pillow and consciousness wanes. Remembered or not, bizarre and fantastical worlds are likely to flood the brain, all while your eyes are closed.

Michael Saag, MD came to Birmingham in 1981 to begin his residency in internal medicine at UAB with plans become a cardiologist. A few days after arriving in the city, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control reported eight cases of “unusual opportunistic infections” in gay men. The discovery of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) soon sent Saag down a career path he never imagined.

Michael Saag, MD, a professor of medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and director of the UAB Center for AIDS Research, noted that the cost of the combination therapy renders it widely unaffordable. “The question [is] … how do we make HIV care the most cost effective? This is important in HIV as more drugs go generic, but it is applicable to all areas of medicine,” he said. “We can’t afford to prescribe in the absence of consideration of cost of care.”
