E.U. warns that
HIV cases are increasing

The European Union is launching a three-year AIDS campaign to promote safer sex and the use of sterile needles and to prevent mother-to-child infections. "We must not lose sight of the fact that HIV/AIDS is still one of the biggest preventable killers worldwide," said Markos Kyprianou, the E.U.'s health commissioner. With a special focus on affordable therapies and diagnostics, the effort will seek to increase HIV monitoring, treatment, and research. The monitoring group EuroHIV says new HIV cases in the 20 E.U. countries were up by 23% in the past four years. The United Kingdom saw the biggest jump: a 69% increase in new cases. (AP)
