The number of newly-HIV-infected people is decreasing, but the number of people living with HIV is rising.

  • Increased access to antiretroviral treatment has resulted in increased life expectancy amongst AIDS patients.
  • Global funding for malaria control has increased.
  • The number of new tuberculosis cases has peaked and is leveling off; prevalence and mortality rates are dropping, but the goal of halving the prevalence of and mortality from TB by 2015 will likely not be met.
