Experts say there has been a drop in new HIV infections around the world.
The report from the joint United Nations program on HIV and AIDS found new infections among adults and children are down a third since 2001.
AIDS-related deaths have also gone down by a third. They credit better access to antiretroviral drugs for the decline, as well as increased knowledge about the virus and available treatments.
New doctors plan to focus prevention efforts on at-risk groups like drug users and victims of sexual violence.
