Several good news announcements came out of the 18th annual International AIDS Conference under way in Vienna.

The number of people benefitting from life-saving HIV treatment has soared by more than 1 million last year to 5.2 million, marking the largest jump ever, according to a United Nations report unveiled today.

Additionally the UN World Health Organization said that the prevalence of HIV/Aids among young people is now falling in some of the world’s worst-hit countries, according to the BBC.

Bill Gates, whose foundation is another leader in the global health field, spoke at the conference saying the number of infections has gone down by 17 percent worldwide.
