Global issues of HIV/AIDS

Do you know this?

According to the latest figures from UNAIDS, there are now over 38 million people living with HIV worldwide. Four million people are newly infected each year, and AIDS is increasingly a disease of young women, who have few means to protect themselves and now account for a majority of new infections in many countries.

People’s access to life-saving anti-retroviral (ARV) drugs has expanded significantly, from 240,000 people in 2001 to 1.6 million people in low- and middle-income countries in 2006.
