UN Report: "Extraordinary" progress in HIV prevention

AIDSribbonA new report from the United Nations shows that many countries are applying the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) developed Fast Track Strategy, which facilitates more timely treatments for people living with HIV.

The report, entitled ‘Focus on location and population: on the Fast-Track to end AIDS by 2030,’ documents over 50 cities, communities and countries and their innovative processes for reaching greater numbers with HIV prevention and treatment services.

The UN have set a target to end AIDS by the year 2030 as part of the organisations Sustainable Development Goals program. UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé says the body has more than doubled the number of people on HIV treatment every five years.

“We need to do it just one more time to break the AIDS epidemic and keep it from rebounding,” Mr Sidibé said.

The report highlights the need for more comprehensive data to more effectively map and liaise with areas where the most new instances of HIV occur.

UNAIDS have registered 35 countries using the Fast-Track Strategy, accounting for 90% of new HIV cases. The report says that a focus on location, population and programmes will assist in meeting specific targets by 2030 – with the potential to avert 21 million AIDS-related deaths and 28 million new people living with HIV.

“Today, we have more HIV prevention options than ever before,” Mr Sidibé said.

“And with better data, we can become better match makers, finding the right prevention options for the right people.”

The report shows that at present, an estimated 15.8 million people are receiving HIV treatments or anti-retroviral therapy – double the number from 2010 – using the Fast-Track Strategy.

UNAIDS are aiming to achieve a ’90-90-90 treatment target’ – 90% of people living with HIV knowing their status, 90% of people who know their status are on treatment and 90% of people on treatment with suppressed or undetectable viral loads.

“Everyone has the right to a long and healthy life,” Mr Sidibé said.

“We must take HIV services to the people who are most affected, and ensure that these services are delivered in a safe, respectful environment with dignity and free from discrimination.”

The report comes prior to World AIDS Day. Marked on December 1st each year, it is a day of awareness and remembrance of those who have passed.

  1. Hello friends good day to you all!
    It is of a good pleasure for me to share this great testimony with you all, though some of us over here might not take it to be true.
    Few years ago i was diagnosed with Hiv virus and life turn out mealiness to me as when i did my second test and the result came out positive again, ever since then i have been on research looking for any possible means to get rid of this disease as i always have the faith that God could have mercy on a sinner and he could also use any means to heal the sick so far you have the faith, few months ago while i was on search on the internet i came across several testimonials in regards of how Dr Molemen has been treating and curing different patients from various disease just with his herbal medicine, when i saw this great testimony i was left with no option than to contact this man, i had the faith that if this Dr Molemen could help others definitely he is going to solve my problem.
    After speaking with Dr Molemen over the email he told me the procedures in other for me to get the medicine and he also said he was going to send the medicine to me through my home address and that means i was going to send my address to him, i did just as i was told by Dr Molemen and after some days passed i received a package sent from Dr Molemen to me, i quickly called him to let him know that i have received the medicine so he could direct me on how to take the medicine, Dr Molemen actually gave me full directions on how to take this medicine and he said that after i have finished taking this medicine for approximately 2 weeks i should go back to the hospital for checkup and he also assured me that my test result is going to come out Negative, this was something i did not believe that very moment, but i kept on taking this medicine, Now 2 weeks has completed and i am scared to go back again for check up to see actually if this medicine has cured me, i later had the courage as i knew there was no option for me, i went back to the hospital for test and the doctor took my blood for test and told me to come the next day, while i was going home that day i was so scared and i knew if this results comes out the same i won`t be able to withstand it, when i got home i told Dr Molemen about it and he told me to have faith that i am going to see the good potency of his medicine, the very day i was to come for my results came and when i got to the hospital the doctor looked at me and smiled, i was wondering inside of me why he is acting this way, he later brought my test slip result and then he told me that i have turned negative, i did not believe it immediately tears rolled out from my eyes as i have been praying for a day like this, i went to different hospital to get tested again and they all told me that i am negative, friends this is unbelievable but Dr Molemen has done it he has changed my entire life.
    I am health and fit to live again, you all should contact Dr Molemen for any problem and i assure you that he is going to make changes with your problem. Here is the contact info for Dr Molemen ( drmolemenspiritualtemple@gmail.com or ( dr.molemenspiritualtemple@yahoo.com) or call him on +2347036013351.
    All thanks to Dr Molemen..
