Global War Against AIDS May Fail Target, Warns UN

The AIDS epidemic has outpaced global mobilisation against the disease in the last five years, frustrating efforts to halt the spread of the virus// , the UN says in advance of a review conference.

A dozen heads of state and more than 100 government ministers are scheduled to meet Wednesday-Friday at UN headquarters to assess results based on a five-year plan issued by the UN General Assembly to try to reverse the epidemic by 2010.

There are 15 million orphans whose parents were lost to the epidemic.

Every day around the world, AIDS kills 8,000 people, and another 14,000 people become infected, the UN said.

There were more infections and more AIDS deaths in 2005 than ever before, the study says. Only about one in five patients in poor and middle-income countries who need anti-retroviral drugs are getting them, while the number of people requiring treatment has increased.
