UNAIDS: Nearly Half of Currently Eligible People With HIV Worldwide Have ARV Access

A new report in anticipation of World AIDS Day on December 1 shows global HIV transmission has leveled off over the past four years, The Associated Press (AP) reports. Authored by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), the report shows that there were 2.7 million new cases of HIV in 2010, a number that has remained unchanged since 2007. About 34 million people currently have HIV, a slight increase over previous years due to lower mortality rates, with AIDS-related deaths dropping from 1.9 million in 2009 to 1.8 million in 2010. According to a UNAIDS statement, 47 percent (6.6 million) of the estimated 14.2 million people currently eligible for treatment in low- and middle-income countries had access to antiretroviral (ARV) medications in 2010, an increase of 1.35 million since 2009.
