'Hard Choices' Face Next UNAIDS Head

The pace of progress against HIV is slowing, says a new report by UNAIDS, the United Nations agency charged with "reducing new HIV infections, increasing access to treatment and ending AIDS-related deaths". The warning comes as the global group is hiring a new executive director. One of the candidates, Dr. Sani Aliyu, spoke to Bunmi Makinwa, the former Africa Regional Director of UNFPA, the UN population fund, in a lengthy interview probing Aliyu's qualifications for the position and the ideas that would guide his approach.
