AIDS deaths in Cuba have decreased significantly in the past 18 months since the island began producing generic HAART and complementary treatments.

Caritas Internationalis, a confederation of 154 Catholic relief agencies, officially confessed to un-Christian, anti-HIVer discrimination, saying "we often rejected when we should have embraced."

An Emory University study found that U.S. prevention programs may have kept as many as 1.5 million HIV negative -- at a cost of $10.1 billion and a much greater savings in treatment costs.

Britain's annual HIV infection rate jumped to 6,000 in 2002. Officials blame the 20 percent rise on unsafe shagging among gay Brits and immigrants.
