Aids-related deaths ‘down 21% from peak’, says UNAids
"We are on the verge of a significant breakthrough. Even in a very difficult financial crisis, countries are delivering results in the Aids response."
- executive director, Michel Sidibe, UN
Aids-related deaths are at the lowest level since their 2005 peak, down 21%, figures from UNAids suggest.
The organisation says both falls have been fuelled by a major expansion in access to treatment.
