Today is December 1 and is World AIDS Day. Here are some staggering statistics:
- More than two million AIDS related deaths reported globally in 2008 - two million children under the age of 15 now live with HIV.
- New figures released by the World Health Organization and UNAIDS estimate the number of new HIV infections have declined each year by about 17% from 2001 to 2008, but for every five people infected, only two start treatment.
