A new report from the United Nations finds that the AIDS epidemic may be slowing globally, but is increasing in some countries. The report finds an estimated 38.6 million people are living with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, around the world. About 4.1 million people are estimated to have become infected last year. A researcher talks about new data and the changing face of AIDS.

Guest:

Paul De Lay, M.D., director of monitoring and evaluation, Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS)
