HIV: United Nations meets goal to treat 15 million
« on: July 14, 2015, 03:51:11 PM »

The goal to get HIV treatment to 15 million people by the end of 2015 has already been met, says the United Nations Aids agency.
The landmark figure was reached in March - nine months ahead of schedule.
It follows decades of global efforts and investment to get antiretroviral drugs to those in need - such as people living in sub-Saharan Africa.
In 2000, when the UN first set goals to combat HIV, fewer than 700,000 people were receiving these vital medicines.
According to UN Aids, which has a report out today, the global response to HIV has averted 30 million new HIV infections and nearly eight million Aids-related deaths since the millennium.
Over the same time frame, new HIV infections have fallen from 2.6 million per year to 1.8 million, and Aids-related deaths have gone down from 1.6 million to 1.2 million.
Meanwhile, global investment in HIV has gone up from ?3.1bn ($4.8bn) in 2000 to more than ?13bn ($20bn) in 2014.
And concerted action over the next five years could end the Aids epidemic by 2030, says UN Aids.
But progress has been slower in some areas.
