In its annual report on the state of the global pandemic released in September, UNAIDS said new HIV infections had plummeted by a third overall since 2001 and more than halved among children. Twenty-five countries -- many in sub-Saharan Africa -- reported a 50 percent reduction in new infections last year due to increased availability of treatments. Last year 1.6 million people died from AIDS-related causes, down from 2.3 million in 2005, according to the United Nations.
