Commentary for World AIDS Day

I didn’t find as much World AIDS Day coverage on the major news sites as I thought I might — blame the US political transition and the economic meltdown, I suppose.  I did, however, find some interesting articles that give good overviews of progress, setbacks, and challenges of HIV/AIDS efforts in the last year, and beyond.
