HIV/AIDs: UK meets global target, as new diagnoses drop

News Image

More than 130,000 people were newly diagnosed with HIV past year in Eastern Europe, the highest rate ever for the region, while the number of new cases in Western Europe declined, global public health experts said on Wednesday.

The joint report said one reason for the persistence of HIV in Europe is that many people infected with the virus are diagnosed late, meaning they are more likely to have already passed it on and are also at an advanced stage of infection.

Rates were excessive in Russian Federation where 71 contemporary cases were detected per 100,000 people in 2017 succeeded by Ukraine and Belarus. Last week, a UNAID report found that 9.4 million people living with HIV worldwide do not now know they are living with the virus. But more can be done - an estimated 43% of new HIV diagnoses in 2017 were made at a late stage of infection, the United Kingdom figures showed. "The significance in this report is that we can see a sharp difference between Eastern Europe and the European Union where the number of HIV infection numbers is dropping".

This message you have received in the past year, more than 130,000 people in Eastern Europe. However, Dara said the current state is far from reaching this target.

"For injecting drug users, they need to have clear needle exchange programs".

The Chamber of the capital will launch on Wednesday the campaign "stop HIV is in our hands", with the aim of "increasing the knowledge of the population" regarding the prevention and transmission of the AIDS virus.

"Where human rights for LGBT (people) are not accepted, and are not free and protected for everyone, there can not be efficient HIV prevention", Yoursky said.

European Union and European Economic Area countries saw a reduction in 2017 rates, mainly driven by a 20 percent drop since 2015 among men who have sex with men. Around 59 percent of cases in Eastern Europe are due to heterosexual contact the report finds.

Dr. Zsuzsanna Jakab, WHO Regional Director for Europe, called the figures "unacceptably high", adding that the region is "not on course to meet the 90-90-90 standards by the 2020 deadline".

Vytenis Andriukaitis, the European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, in a statement said, "Despite our efforts, HIV still damages the lives of so many people, and causes not only much suffering and illness, but also discrimination and stigmatisation".

"We all need to realize our responsibilities and the critical role we all have to play to make Pakistan HIV free", the minister said while addressing a Seminar in connection with World AIDS Day.

The target is part of the the Sustainable Development Goal of eliminating HIV in Europe, and worldwide, by 2030.

"Policies that reduce social marginalisation, stigma and discrimination are needed as are increased funding for prevention and testing", Pozniak said in a statement. World AIDS Day was founded in 1988.
