Number Of AIDS Deaths, HIV Infections Fall, But Drug Resistance Rises, U.N. Report Says

The Guardian: AIDS deaths tumble but rising resistance to HIV drugs threatens gains
“In the runup to next week’s International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, Australia, the U.N. has claimed that AIDS-related deaths and new HIV infections have fallen by more than a third in a decade, raising hopes that the disease could be wiped out by 2030. … The optimism, however, is tempered by two facts: not only are more than half of the 35 million people living with HIV unaware they are infected, but the number of people with drug-resistant HIV, though relatively low, is increasing…” (Austen, 7/18).
