New ONE Report Examines Global Commitments To Ending AIDS Pandemic

In a guest post in the Global Health Technologies Coalition’s “Breakthroughs” blog, Anupama Dathan, a health research assistant for ONE, “writes about a new report that examines global commitments to ending the AIDS pandemic,” the second in a series of annual AIDS accountability reports released by ONE. “The good news in the report is that the world is making steady progress,” but “[d]espite a reduction in the number of new HIV infections, most of the progress stems from an annual acceleration in the number of people newly accessing treatment each year,” she states, adding, “Truly ending the AIDS epidemic will be next to impossible without also dramatically reducing new HIV infections, a feat that requires renewed attention to HIV prevention measures” (12/4).
