World ‘losing fight against Aids’

Dr Fauci says there must be greater effort to boost prevention

US President George W Bush’s top adviser on HIV/Aids has said the world is losing the battle against the virus.

Dr Anthony Fauci told a conference in Sydney that progress had been made, but more people were being infected with HIV than were being treated.
“For every one person that you put in therapy, six new people get infected. So we’re losing that game, the numbers game,” he said.
