Congolese who are HIV positive celebrate the World AIDS Day at an outpatient treatment center for AIDS run by the Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo December 1, 2005. The center, which was opened in 2003, now treats 3,500 patients for free. The United Nations used World AIDS Day on Thursday to call for an "exceptional response" to the global crisis as African patients criticized politicians for failing to tackle a disease that kills millions each year.
