World AIDS Day efforts look to protect progress

Dozens of landmarks in 13 countries including
the Sydney Opera House and New York's Empire State Building turned red
today to mark World AIDS Day at a time when infections rates in many
countries are falling but a decrease in available funding threatens to
derail progress. Advocates hope to raise awareness on testing and
prevention, and put focus on the goal of ending mother-to-child
transmission by 2015. Global infection rates have declined almost 20%
according to the United Nations, but 33 million people are still living
with HIV/AIDS.
