A new United Nations report has found that AIDS / HIV related deaths are falling across the globe with advances in treatment of the condition. The number of people living with HIV is increasing and is now affecting 34 million people around the world, half of whom are women.
In Western Europe and North America where there is very high availability of antiretroviral drugs, the rates of new infections has not fallen as hoped, possibly because people are no longer worried about the virus as it no longer considered fatal.
Practising safer sex and STD testing are needed to help prevent spreading the disease.
