GENEVA: HIV infections fell and treatment soared following an unprecedented response to the AIDS epidemic over the last decade, the UN said on Wednesday, while sounding the alarm over declining funds. New infections dropped by over a quarter between 2001 and 2009 in 33 countries, a report said. In their update WHO, UNICEF and UNAIDS hailed the “extraordinary” achievements in the battle against AIDS.
