The UN's program on HIV and AIDS released statistics
which indicate that the global rate of new infections of HIV has slowed to a halt. However, social stigmatization and other issues are still factors in the lives of patients.
From the article:
"We are breaking the trajectory of the Aids epidemic with bold actions and smart choices," said Mr Michel Sidibe, executive director of UNAids.
"Investments in the Aids response are paying off, but gains are fragile - the challenge now is how we can all work to accelerate progress."
