Global Response to HIV/AIDS Pandemic "Inadequate" Despite Some Successes, Editorial Says

September 30, 2003

Even as the world has seen some "demonstrated successes" in the fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic, the global response to the epidemic has been "inadequate," a Seattle Post-Intelligencer editorial says. As a result, "millions more will die ... [a]nd millions more kids will become orphans," the editorial says. Some nations, including the United States, have made "generous pledges" of money to help fight the disease but have not delivered on their promises, according to the Post-Intelligencer. And while Uganda and other countries have lowered their HIV prevalence rates, Africa still "faces devastation"; the epidemic "threatens to explode in India, China and Eastern Europe"; and the United States is "hardly out of the woods," the Post-Intelligencer says. Although the "victories [against the pandemic] are scattered," the "successes point to what the whole human family can accomplish as it puts its mind, its will, and eventually its financial resources to full use," the editorial concludes (Seattle Post-Intelligencer, 9/28).
