also, a front page report about the severe lack of access to ARVs for HIV+ individuals

A major report just released was conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO), UNAids and Unicef shows that " just 31% of people in need of treatment in low and middle-income countries had access to antiretroviral therapy (ART) in 2007". This leaves about 6.7 million people without access. It also reports that about 2.5 million worldwide are newly infected each year.
