Return of the Real

Dagens rapport 2006 AIDS Epidemic Update fra UNAIDS - the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS - er nedslÄende. Her er et utdrag fra pressemeldingen:
According to the latest figures published today in the UNAIDS/WHO 2006 AIDS Epidemic Update, an estimated 39.5 million people are living with HIV. There were 4.3 million new infections in 2006 with 2.8 million (65%) of these occurring in sub-Saharan Africa and important increases in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, where there are some indications that infection rates have risen by more than 50% since 2004. In 2006, 2.9 million people died of AIDS-related illnesses.

Illustrasjonen er fra den 90 sider lange rapporten som kom i dag - det er viktig og deprimerende lesning.
