2015/07/16/New HIV infections in the world have fallen by 35% since 2000,
but AIDS is still increasing in JAPAN.

New HIV infections have fallen by 35 per cent since 2000, the UNAIDS reported on July 14, but stressed that the world needs to dramatically step up investment as well as access to treatment to roll back AIDS.
【Reference: AFPBB News July 14】

Although new HIV infections in the world declined to two million in 2014 compared to 3.1 million in 2000, what do you think is happening in Japan?

Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare reported that new HIV infections in Japan was 1,091 in 2014, maintaining over 1000 since 2007 with its peak of 1,126 in 2008. Is is never decreasing, and Japan is the only country among the developed nations, that has not been able to stop increase of AIDS. 

It is important to take a real look not only on the world's movement for HIV eradication but also on the actual situation in Japan and to protect ourselves.
