World AIDS Day 2012

WAD RibbonAs we celebrate another World AIDS Day, these data may make a sobering read:

  • 1 person dies of an HIV/AIDS related illness every 18 seconds.
  • 1 person becomes infected with HIV every 14 seconds.
  • The number of those infected with HIV grows by 1 every 56 seconds, that’s 563,142 per year.

We need better Prevention.
