About 2880 candles are seen lit during a World AIDS Day event in JakartaBy Kate Kelland LONDON (Reuters) – The United Nations said on Wednesday new HIV infections and deaths from AIDS were decreasing, making it possible to control the epidemic by 2030 and eventually end it "in every region, in every country". The epidemic had killed some 39 million of the 78 million people it has affected since it began in the 1980s.
