Titled How AIDS Changed Everything—MDG 6: 15 years, 15 Lessons of Hope From the AIDS Response, the report details not only the accomplishments of the past decade and a half, but also the ways that the global AIDS response has affected people and communities.
Worldwide, between 2000 and 2014, new HIV infections have fallen by 35 percent—from 3.1 million to 2 million—and AIDS-related death declined by 41 percent. Without the AIDS response, it’s estimated that new infections would have risen to about 6 million by 2014.
The goal of putting 15 million HIV-positive people on treatment by 2015 has been met nine months ahead of schedule. What’s more, working toward MDG 6 has helped avert 30 million new HIV infections and averted 7.8 million AIDS-related deaths since 2000.
