ABSTRACT
The article reports that the joint United Nations project on AIDS and HIV, UNAIDS, has issued its 2006 report that states that the world is still not doing enough to combat the spread of AIDS. Peter Piot, executive director of UNAIDS, Ann Veneman, executive director of Unicef, and Thoraya Obaid, executive director of the U.N. Population Fund presented the report and said they received full reports from 126 counties. They stated that progress has been better in some regions than others. Although funding for AIDS programs has increased since 2001, it still may be only a third of what is needed. The report states that the approach to management of the AIDS crisis must evolve to changing social norms, behaviors and attitudes that contribute to its spread.
