AIDS death figures dropped by 'almost half' in 11 years

Posted July 22, 2017

More than half of people infected with HIV are now getting treatment and Aids-related deaths have nearly halved since 2005, according to the UN.

Eastern and Southern Africa are showing the most progress, reducing AIDS-related deaths by 42 percent and new HIV infections by almost 30 percent since 2010, the report said.

However, UNAIDS sounded the alarm over developments in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, the only world regions where HIV infections and AIDS-related deaths are on the rise.

The report 90-90-90 targets which is part of Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS, UNAIDS, Ending AIDS sheds light on 2014 target to speed up the progress so that by 2020, 90% of total HIV-infected people know their status, 90% of total HIV-diagnosed people have access to antiretroviral therapy and 90% of those taking the therapy are virally suppressed. Two million people living with HIV is too high a number.

The results show that 11 million people are receiving antiretroviral therapy for HIV through Global Fund-supported programs, an increase of 19 percent from a year before.

One of the most worrying findings of the report is that while new HIV infections are falling, they are not declining significantly enough to meet global targets. This has increased the life expectancy in numerous worst affected regions such as eastern and southern Africa.

"Since 2010, Aids-related deaths have declined by 42%".

This analysis contributed to a national HIV prevention "road map" that defines evidence-informed biomedical and structural interventions and targets them to specific populations and geographical zones.

In 2016 the figures were 70%, 77% and 82% respectively.

21 de julio de 2017, 00:22Paris, Jul 21 (Prensa Latina) For the first time since AIDS was discovered in 1981, there are more people in the world with treatment to fight that disease than those without it, a report by the organization UNAIDS revealed.

There is a 29% drop in the new HIV cases among all individuals and a 56% drop in HIV cases in children over the same period.

"We need to proactively address the rising levels of resistance to HIV drugs if we are to achieve the global target of ending AIDS by 2030", warned the United Nations agency's Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

Significant efforts have also been made to eliminate new infections among children, the report said, with 88 percent of women affected with HIV accessing services for the prevention of mother to child transmission.

This goal is that 90% of people living with HIV know their status, among them, 90% are under treatment, and that among these, 90% had an undetectable viral load.
