Health Affairs Blog: Short-, Long-Term Challenges to Global HIV/AIDS Fight

May 21, 2010

Reflecting on the New York Times' articles about HIV/AIDS worldwide, the Health Affairs blog writes of the short- and long-term financial challenges: "[O]ver the past six years the world has pumped nearly $52 billion into fighting the pandemic, making it possible for more than 4 million infected people to receive treatment ... But even this rapid growth in treatment has not kept pace with the rate of new infections: an estimated 11 million people should be receiving treatment but aren't, and more than 2 million people become newly infected each year," the blog writes, citing the journal's coverage of the topic in the November/December 2009 issue (Fleming, 5/19).
