HIV treatment targets met in advance, says UNAIDS

The Millennium Development goal of giving life-saving treatment to 15 million people by the end of this year was reached nine months ahead of schedule, according to a report by the UN Aids agency.

New HIV infections and Aids-related deaths have fallen by 35 and 41 percent respectively.

But areas like sub-Saharan Africa, which accounted for two-thirds of all new HIV infections in 2014, still lag behind other parts of the world.
