U.N. Reports Great Progress Made in HIV/AIDS Fight

Among the most promising findings:
275,700 children now are receiving ARV treatment, up from 198,000 in 2007.
In South Africa, which has more people living with HIV than any other nation, the number of people getting ARVs grew by half.
The number of people tested for HIV more than doubled in dozens of countries
The report cited the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative (CHAI) as contributor to the response to HIV over the past several years, noting CHAI’s work to lower prices of ARVs.
