Obama Administration releases plan to help stop AIDS

In recognition of World AIDS Day, which is this Saturday, December 1st, the Obama Administration has released an ambitious road map outlining its latest plan to help stop the AIDS epidemic. According to the report, even the hardest hit countries could begin turning the tide in this fight over the next three to five years.  That's because more people today are getting treated earlier.

Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton, said "So, as we continue to drive down the number of new infections, and drive up the number of new people on treatment, we will then get ahead of the pandemic and an AIDS free generation will be in our sight."

Some 34 million people worldwide are currently living with the AIDS virus.  Last year 2.5 million were infected.
