December 1: World AIDS Day

Today is World AIDS Day, and a good day to think of the end of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The tipping point is when on the average, each infected person infects one other during his/her lifetime. Today the world is above the tipping point, and the epidemic is still propagating the virus. If we can get below the tipping point, we will be on the way to beating the disease. Check out the U.S. Government AIDS website and its coverage of World AIDS Day.
