AIDS: Getting the Message
from the Economist
... Once it was only AIDS activists ... who criticised the mandarins of the AIDS establishment. Even then, the criticisms mostly boiled down to two things: "you're not acting fast enough," and "you're not spending enough money."
Now, insiders, too, are ... accusing the World Health Organisation (WHO) and UNAIDS, in particular, of sloppy methodology, of the selective presentation of data, and of kowtowing to political correctness in a way that has distorted priorities for the treatment and prevention of the disease.
Ironically, this is happening at a time when the desire of the activists - treatment for all - no longer looks like a pious hope. It may take longer than those activists would wish. And the definition of "all" may not quite be the one in the dictionary. But the treatment of AIDS is steadily improving.
