Welcome to UNAIDS Science now and to the ninth issue of HIV this month!

This month, the UNAIDS Report on the Global HIV/AIDS Epidemic was released. UNAIDS reports a 52% reduction in new HIV infections among children and a combined 33% reduction among adults and children since 2001.  In case you missed the press release, click here to get access.  The full report is also available for download here.

On 6th September, there was an open meeting of AIDS Experts in the Russian Federation on HIV scientific breakthroughs: from theory to reality where the Chair of the UNAIDS Scientific Expert Panel, Prof Salim Abdool Karim made a presentation.  A video of the discussion can be viewed in English and in Russian  .

On the 30th of September, UNAIDS Science now, together with the WHO HIV Knowledge Seminars presented a discussion on The HIV cure agenda: where are we now? A recorded video of the WebEx session is found here.

Again, we thank you for the very useful feedback through the online survey. We are happy to note that 81% of the survey responses are from old subscribers of HIV This Week - thank you for your loyalty; and that there is a growing 19% new HTM subscribers!  We have seen that 88% found HTM useful to very useful overall, 65% currently forward the HTM to other colleagues and 96% would recommend that colleagues subscribe to HTM.  We also found that 97% recommend that others visit the UNAIDS Science now site. We are looking into your suggestions and comments and we plan to use them to improve this site and the HTM digest.

We hope you enjoy this issue!
