AIDS Progress is Off Track, says ONE Campaign Report

From A View From The Cave Wed Nov 28 2012, 10:57:00

Progress over the past two years against AIDS leads advocates to speak optimistically about the end of the devastating pandemic. In the same period of time there have been five million people newly infected with HIV, a number that represents a slowing of progress according to a new ONE Campaign report.

"The world is off-track for achieving the beginning of the end of AIDS by 2015," says the report which shows that the number of new infections are continuing a slow decline while the number of people newly put on ARVs has flat-lined since 2010. To alter the trajectories of prevention and treatment efforts will bring the world to what the ONE campaign calls "the beginning of the end of AIDS."

Projections based on current trends show that the point where the number of new people who receive ARVs will not exceed the number of new infections until 2022. ONE proposes an alternative projection where 140,000 people are added to ARV treatment each year and a doubling of prevention efforts will accelerate the transition point to be met by 2015.
