A dog waits by a bed with a terminally ill Thai man, at a hospice for those dying of AIDS, at Wat Prabat Nampu Buddhist temple in Lopburi, on the World AIDS day December 1, 2009. Thailand has been widely praised for its work in containing the virus. The number of new infections fell from a peak of around 140,000 a year in 1991, to 18,000 in 2005, according to UNAIDS. This remarkable achievement came about mainly because men used condoms more, and also reduced their use of brothels.  REUTERS/Damir Sagolj
