WHO's New Global AIDS Numbers: 'Let's Stop Guessing,' Says AHF
Date:11/20/2007

y discredits not only the old numbers but the new."

According to today's Associated Press, "AIDS Cases Drop, But Mostly Due to Revised Data," (Maria Cheng, 11/20/07): "Much of the drop is due to revised numbers from India - which earlier this year slashed its numbers in half, from about 6 million cases to about 3 million - and to new data from several countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Previous AIDS numbers were largely based on the numbers of infected pregnant women at clinics, as well as projecting the AIDS rates of certain high-risk groups like drug users to the entire population at risk. Officials said those numbers were flawed, and are now incorporating more data like national household surveys. U.N. officials could not rule out future downward corrections. WHO and UNAIDS experts reported 2.5 million newly infected people in 2007. Just a few years ago, that figure was about 5 million

"There has also been no overnight success or significant increase in safer-sex practices or stepped up availability of condoms around the globe, further eroding our belief in these newly revised WHO statistics," added Weinstein.
