20th World AIDS Day 2007

The good news on World AIDS Day is that the UN changed the 2006 estimate of the number of people living with HIV from 34.1 - 47.1 million people, to 30 - 35.3 million people. The more precise number comes largely from revised numbers for India, as well as Angola, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria and Zimbabwe. Two-thirds of the people living with AIDS are in sub-Saharan Africa, where the number of infected women is now 61%.

The theme for this 20th observance of World AIDS Day is leadership.
