Latin America Progresses in Curbing AIDS, but Still Has Long Way to Go
December 6, 2011
The annual number of new HIV infections in Latin America has changed relatively little in recent years, the UN reported ahead of World AIDS Day. Following steady declines after 1996, new infections have since the early 2000s leveled off, with 92,000 new cases and 58,000 AIDS-related deaths reported in 2009.
