AIDS: News from the front | The Economist

NO NEWS is often good news. AIDS has dropped out of the headlines in recent years, and that is because, in the battle between virus and people, people are winning.

This year’s campaign report by UNAIDS, the United Nations agency charged with combating the disease, confirms that optimistic picture. Though AIDS is not beaten (it still kills 1.6m people a year), this number is down from a peak of 2.3m in 2005. And the number of new infections per year has fallen by a third, to 2.3m, since 2001. Paradoxically, the number of those infected is rising. But this is because they are living longer.
