Letter to the Editor
Re “U.N. Agency Denies Inflating Cases of H.I.V. Deliberately” (news article, Nov. 21):
To the Editor:
Debate on the revised H.I.V./AIDS estimates is pointless. The pandemic
and number of new infections are still horrific. We must make better
progress on prevention and treatment for all, especially women and
young people, who are increasingly vulnerable.
We should all be working to more effectively allocate American AIDS funds to support global efforts to end child marriage, provide comprehensive sexuality education and invest in female-initiated prevention measures, like microbicides.
