The National Institutes of Health released a statement today, a day after World AIDS Day, summarizing progress in the fight against the disease. The statement — authored by Anthony S. Fauci, MD, director, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases; Jack Whitescarver, PhD, director, NIH Office of AIDS Research; and Francis S. Collins, MD, PhD, NIH director — said work still needs to be done to rid the world of AIDS.

“In 2013, more than 2 million people globally became newly infected with HIV, and 1.5 million people died from AIDS-related causes,” according to the statement. “The number of new HIV infections and AIDS-related deaths has dropped by more than one-third in the past decade largely because of advances in HIV prevention and greater access to antiretroviral therapy. However, far too many adults and children continue to become HIV-infected and die from the effects of the virus, including here in the United States.”
