As I blogged in July, we will need to simultaneously reduce the death rate from AIDS and the rate of new HIV infections if we hope to one day end the epidemic. And to reduce the total number of HIV-infected persons in a country, the rate of new infections must fall below the (now reduced) rate of death from AIDS—a milestone that I’ve termed the “AIDS transition.”
