Fact: TB deaths are declining globally
Down from 1.8 million deaths in 2003 to 1.4 million deaths in 2010.
Fact: Malaria deaths fell by 33% in the African region between 2000 and 2010.
Half of sub-Saharan African households now own an anti-malaria net, up from just 3% in 2000.
Fact: 6.2 million sub-Saharan Africans were on life preserving antiretroviral treatment for AIDS in 2011, up from just 50,000 in 2002.
