New Global HIV Cases Among Children Drop 52% Since 2001

Significant progress has been made toward reducing new HIV cases worldwide and reversing the course of the AIDS pandemic, according to a new report from the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS). In a statement, UNAIDS estimates that new HIV cases globally among adults and children were 2.3 million in 2012, which represents a 33 percent reduction since 2001. Also since then, new HIV cases solely among children have declined by 52 percent to 260,000 around the world. As a result of expanded access to antiretroviral treatment worldwide, AIDS-related deaths have dropped by 30 percent since 2005, which was the peak. The 2013 UNAIDS Report on the Global AIDS Epidemic was released in anticipation of U.N. review of progress toward the Millennium Development Goals, which set specific targets for member states.
