The scourge of HIV and AIDS is regarded as both a potentially manageable infection and the most devastating health problem facing the human race. On World AIDS Day, NPR's Tony Cox speaks about progress in the worldwide fight against HIV and AIDS with Dr. Helene Gayle, president of the International AIDS Society and director of HIV, TB and Reproductive Health at the Gates Foundation, and with Dr. Robert Scott, an HIV-AIDS specialist and chair of the Allen Temple Baptist Church AIDS Ministry based in Oakland, Calif.
