New York Conducts AIDS Testing

An estimated 35 million people around the world are living with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. And the U.S. Centers for Disease control estimates some 39 million people worldwide have died of the disease since the epidemic began. While much progress has been made in treating HIV and AIDS, the fight against the disease continues. VOA's Bernard Shusman tells us about one such effort in New York City, where a community health care truck was out testing the public on World Aids Day.
