The PBS NewsHour's "The Rundown" blog features an interview with journalist Jon Cohen, in which he discusses the possibility of an "AIDS-free generation," recent reports from UNAIDS and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, AIDS funding, HIV vaccine research, and World AIDS Day. "So there's good news in the sense that the epidemic has stabilized, that new infections are dropping compared to a decade ago. And the more sobering news is there's a lot of progress that the world collectively agreed should happen by 2015 ... and it just doesn't look like much of it is going to happen," Cohen said about data in the UNAIDS' World AIDS Day report: Results, the blog reports (Kane, 11/30).
