Ending the AIDS Epidemic? U.N. Says It’s Possible

It’s possible to bring AIDS under control so it’s “no longer a public health threat” by 2030, U.N. officials said today in Geneva, according to Agence France-Presse.

“We have a fragile window of opportunity, because what we do over the next five years will determine the next 15,” Michel Sidibe, head of UNAIDS, told reporters. The agency released a new report on the impact of the disease worldwide. (Also, see the agency’s news release on the report.)

Other officials were quick to note that in many countries, the AIDS crisis is far from over.

“We are very uncomfortable with the way they are talking about the end of AIDS. We think it is premature to be talking in those terms,” Marcus Low, spokesman of South Africa’s Treatment Action Campaign, told AFP.

    I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
