As funding slows, the steady decline in #HIV infections has stalled, warns a new report by +UNAIDS. Global AIDS targets are "off track" with "worrying increases" in new HIV infections in some regions.
Globally, new HIV infections among adults and children were reduced by 40% since the peak in 1997. However, new analysis from UNAIDS shows that new HIV infections among adults have stalled, failing to decline for at least five years. The report outlines what is needed to step up prevention efforts

Adolescents are still at risk of contracting and succumbing to HIV/Aids despite interventions to curb the scourge, First Lady Margaret Kenyatta said on Wednesday.She said that since the discovery of the disease in the 1980s, the fight against HIV has been partially won following reduction of stigma, increased access to ARVs and sharing of correct information.The first lady said that more still needs to be done towards rallying resources within re...

"all this drives Big Pharma mad"
India’s innovative patent system has brought cheap generic drugs to millions. Now it’s under threat — because the Hindu right is obsessed with cows.

"True"
The Clinton Foundation might be committed to doing good around the world, but Hillary Clinton’s critics see it as a ripe target to bring down the presumptive Democratic nominee. Republican Donald Trump recently charged that some countries who gave money to the foundation received favorable treatment in return. For anyone who hasn’t heard about the Clinton Foundation, it’s the signature project to reduce poverty and improve global health created b...
