JOHANNESBURG (AP) - A new report on South Africa’s AIDS epidemic says reversing it is “extremely difficult, if not impossible, in the coming years.”

A report Robert Hecht helped prepare outlines an ambitious plan that would cost $102 billion over two decades and bring the number of new infections down from half a million to under 200,000 a year. The report was released Friday.

Hecht says there is hope despite the report’s bleak outlook and questions about whether international donors can sustain spending.
