The global health response to HIV represents one of the great public health feats of recent times. It is the result of enormous commitment and solidarity, strong partnerships, generous funding and other support, and far-sighted innovations – much of it evident in the African Region, which is a major feature of this report. The first section looks at the statistical impact of people infected by HIV/AIDS. It also recounts the progress made in controlling AIDS in Africa and finally what needs to be done to effectively fight the epidemic.
