While tuberculosis and malaria remain serious health threats, Africa as a whole has halted the spread of both

Africa has halted and reversed the spread of HIV/ AIDS, with a drop in prevalence rates from 5.9 per cent in 2001 to 4.9 per cent in 2011, due to strong political will, focused interventions and the antiretroviral therapy available for the majority of the population. While tuberculosis and malaria remain serious health threats, Africa as a whole has halted the spread of both. Tuberculosis infections and deaths have fallen sharply in recent years, as have malaria cases and deaths. Improved prevention and treatment played a large role in the declines.
