Since 1988, that year World AIDS Day The AIDS global health ministries' global meeting of ministers, United Nations agencies, governments and civil society are fighting in areas related to AIDS each year. Since then, significant progress has been made in the face of AIDS and, to date, One of the four people living with HIV knows three of their serostats.
However, and according to Onusida's latest report, there is still a long way to go, and this is for people living with HIV and they do not know their status and support services and quality prevention.
"Meet your status"This year's World AIDS Day, "HIV testing is essential for ensuring the treatment and the possibility of channeling healthy and productive life to people living with the virus." It is also essential goals 90-90-90 and people who allow the decision-making process for HIV prevention to protect themselves and their offspring.
"Viral viral tests are essential for the monitoring of HIV treatment," said Michel Sidibé, executive director of Onusida, "thanks, we can verify that it is done, keep people healthy and monitor the virus".
Unfortunately, there are many barriers to HIV testing. Stigma and discrimination to those who do not condemn, it continues to have access to confidential evidence and only continues to suffer from many illnesses and symptoms.
The good news is there are many ways to extend access to HIV testing. Diagnostic tests, community testing and various diagnostic tests are helping people get to know the serostat.
In the world 36.9 million people live in HIV1,8 million new infections are produced each year and 940 thousand people have died of diseases related to diseases over the past year. Statistics show the current world panorama of the epidemic. And these variables are carefully called "90% of people with HIV have a diagnosis, 90% of 90% access to treatment maintain their virus load, and the HIV / AIDS epidemic can be completed within 10 years," Onusida said.
However, according to Onusida's data In 2017, one of four people living with HIV (75%) knows their status. Among those who knew their status, they had access to treatment from four to five (79%). Among the people who received the treatment, five out of four (81%) viruses were removed.
Call the G20 leaders
To celebrate World AIDS Day, the G20 will be held in Buenos Aires It's about decisions about the future of the world and HIV is not on your agenda. For this reason, Fundación Huésped, along with the support of Onusida, will carry out activities to organize the HIV agenda. It is an interactive infographic. The flags of the countries in which they are represented represent the HIV statistics for each country. In addition, interactive infographics will be carried out in an open-source facility for the public.
"The end of the HIV epidemic is the responsibility of the world leader, and it is not the goal, because most countries have tools to test, treat and improve HIV-positive people's quality of life. The challenge is to reach 90% of people with HIV. That is why we ask that we promise to prevent death and we promise it, "said the scientific director of the Pedro Cahn Huésped Foundation.
This facility, the flags of the countries participating in the summit and the statistics on the world epidemic, "sets the necessary stages to end the HIV epidemic, so we decided to show and ask about the information that people have placed on HIV," added Dany Minaker and Patán Tarazaga DGC of Wunderman, an agency that develops the action.
