AIDS has been one of the leading medical crusades for many years and part of that program has been education and research. According to a UN report released this week, the entire program has actually been very successful since 2001 as the number of AIDS infections has fallen by over 50% in just over 10 years. This is a huge step in the right direction and is absolutely great news, plus doctors are incredibly hopeful that this will continue for years to come.
Not only is the number of new AIDS infections down dramatically, the amount of AIDS related deaths has also dropped by 30% in the same time period. Both of these statistics are absolutely fantastic news and everyone around the world is celebrating the success of various education and treatment programs that have become common around the world. The UN is planning to continue with their current AIDS related efforts as well as adding multiple new programs for countries that need additional help, overall they are hopeful that the next decade will be even more effective. While a medical breakthrough to cure or prevent AIDS has not yet been achieved this is absolutely the biggest step in the right direction ever regarding AIDS.
