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 wish to show my appreciation to you just for rescuing me from this particular challenge. After exploring through the search engines and getting strategies which are not helpful, I believed my entire life was done. Living devoid of the solutions to the issues you have solved by way of your good website is a serious case, as well as the kind that could have in a wrong way affected my entire career if I had not encountered the blog. Your primary know-how and kindness in controlling every part was very helpful. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t encountered such a point like this. I can also at this time relish my future. Thanks a lot so much for the reliable and amazing guide. I will not think twice to recommend the website to any person who will need direction on this subject.

    The very core of your writing while sounding reasonable in the beginning, did not settle perfectly with me personally after some time. Somewhere within the sentences you were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a short while. I nevertheless have got a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you would do well to fill in those breaks. If you actually can accomplish that, I will certainly be impressed.

    Virtually all of the things you claim happens to be supprisingly precise and it makes me ponder the reason why I had not looked at this with this light before. This article truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this specific issue goes. But there is actually just one point I am not too cozy with so whilst I attempt to reconcile that with the core theme of the position, allow me see just what all the rest of the readers have to point out.Very well done.
