The unlikely trio of Cambodia, New Zealand and Spain lead the world in reducing AIDS deaths from peak levels.
How does the rest of the world stack up? Check out the map:
The data comes from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation based at the University of Washington and the Solutions Journalism network. The percentages are based on reduction in deaths from the peak in a given country to 2010. Other outstanding countries include the Untied States (75% reduction), Rwanda (83%) and Haiti (80%).
There are also some places like China and large parts of south-east Asia that have yet to reach peak levels. Though there is a lot of reason for optimism. Even countries that are struggling with poverty can manage to beat back deaths caused by AIDS.
