As commemorations for World AIDS Day 2011 begin, members of Dochas, the umbrella group of Irish Development NGOs, welcome significant progress in the fight against HIV and AIDS over the past 30 years. NGOs acknowledge that better prevention programmes, improved drugs, and wider access to treatment have contributed to major advances in combating the disease.
