Lancet Commission’s Stark Warning on HIV/AIDS

A new Lancet Commission report on HIV/AIDS released yesterday warns that “the HIV pandemic is not on track to end.”
 
The authors emphasize the risks of complacency and declining international funding.
 
There are still nearly 2 million new infections each year. “We're really not seeing the declines in new infections that people were hoping would happen by now," says Chris Beyrer, of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and an author of the report published before next week’s 22nd International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam. “And there are worrisome signs of an expanding epidemic in some populations.”
