On International AIDS day (today), I'd like to send a message of support to all translators and interpreters who have HIV/AIDS or who have a loved one who is affected. We're not immune to what's around us...

the projection Dec 1, 2006

Within the next 25 years, AIDS is set to join heart disease and stroke as the top three causes of death worldwide, with estimates that at least 117 million people will die from the disease by 2030, according to a study published online Monday.

When global mortality projections were last calculated a decade ago, researchers had assumed the number of AIDS cases would be declining. Instead, it's on the rise.

Currently ranked fourth behind heart disease, stroke, and respiratory infections, AIDS is set to become No. 3, say researchers in a new report in the Public Library of Science's Medicine journal. It accounts for about 2.8 million deaths every year, but could near 120 million by 2030.

Forgive me if I'm missing something, but what do you mean by "all the same" and "you know who you are"? I'm not sure what point you're making and don't really see the humour (and in case you're wondering, no, I'm not personally affected by the issue, I just think it's quite a serious one).
