Colin Mathers and Dejan Loncar of the Globe Health Corporation estimates that at least 117 million people will die from Helps by 2030. Within an optimistic potential projection, if new HIV infections are curbed and usage of life-prolonging antiretrovirals is increased, 89 million people will die from the condition. What happens later on depends quite definitely on what the worldwide community does now, Mathers said.
