AIDS Epidemic Could be Ended by 2030, UN Reports

According to the United Nations AIDS program, it is now possible to control the AIDS epidemic by 2030, and eventually end it worldwide, Reuters reports. In contrast to 2001, new HIV infections have fallen by 38 percent, and AIDS deaths have fallen 35 percent since 2005. By controlling the spread of HIV and increasing access to antiretroviral therapy, which keeps HIV in check, UNAIDS said the epidemic could be ended within 16 years. The program also stressed that this would only be possible by meeting the targeted annual need of 22-24 billion dollars for AIDS response in 2015.
