A report released yesterday afternoon by the ONE Campaign says that the momentum against AIDS has been lost as progress is off track to meet the MDG. From Reuters: The conclusion contrasts with a UN report last week, which found that an end to AIDS was in sight due to better access to drugs.

Global leaders last year committed to the “beginning of the end of AIDS” by 2015.
