AIDS epidemic could end by 2030

Top United Nations officials believe that the HIV/AIDS epidemic could be over by 2030, due to the advancements in medication and prevention
Luis Loures, a deputy executive director of UNAIDS, said this:
"I think that 2030 is a viable target to say that we have reached the end of the epidemic. HIV will continue existing as a case here or there but not at the epidemic level we have today.”
UNAIDS reports that new infections has fallen 20% over the past decade, and in 25 countries, by 50%.
Over the past two years, the number of people who are receiving treatment has increased 60%.

This is very good news, folks
