As an action-packed year for the HIV/AIDS community draws to a close, takes stock of 2011 in a new series of articles, "2011 HIV/AIDS Year in Review." Read the entire series here.


A year can seem like a long time. When our planet was last where it is now relative to the sun, the spewing remnants of the BP Deepwater Horizon rig had just been capped, mid-term elections handed the GOP the keys to the House, and a new-fangled device called the iPad had been in stores for only a few months.

Below are some of the stories that marked our journey through 2011 and, in some way, changed things from the way they used to be.

David, many thanks for this very helpful round-up.

It's disappointing for me to perceive from what you have reported that we are nowhere as near "the cure" as some reports in various reputable papers over the course of this year have suggested. But this I can accept.

Happy Yule and a successful 2012 to you!
