United Nations, New York, 13 July 2010 – A new United Nations report says that a radically simplified approach to ensuring access to HIV treatment for everyone who needs it could prevent 10 million deaths by 2025 and 1 million new infections annually.

The so-called Treatment 2.0 aims to scale up access to life-saving medicines, including by bringing down treatment costs, making treatment regimens simpler, and reducing the burden on health systems, according to the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS).
