Richmond clinic celebrates 20 years with HIV preventive program



The initiative was created by the New Zealand AIDS Foundation, Positive Women Inc and Body Positive and launched ahead of World AIDS Day 2019 on 1 December.

The celebration of World AIDS Day represents an alliance of all shared experiences to recall the collective responsibility to end the suffering of people living with HIV as well as to provide maximum prevention and treatment for these people. NY officials said that, as of 2018, they have surpassed those numbers - 93% of people with HIV have gotten a diagnosis, 90% are on treatment and 92% of those on treatment are virally suppressed. The goal of ART is to get a person's HIV down to an "undetectable viral load" - also called being virally suppressed.

UNAIDS reports that 32% of people in the Middle East and North Africa are accessing the treatment.

Cambodia is a shining example of making a difference in Asia, where the Cambodian government and donors work hand in hand with communities of people living with or affected by HIV to implement evidence-based HIV services.

"The basic target remains that of "three zeros" - zero new infections, zero AIDS-related deaths and zero discrimination", he said.

The MSNP also urged the society to stand in solidarity with the precious lives that have been lost and salute the communities who have been working hard to bring about changes to stop this epidemic. Mrs Kenyatta said although mother-to-child transmission of HIV in Kenya has been reduced to five per cent, more effort is needed to ensure mothers are counselled, tested and assisted to deliver safely.

In Egypt mobile clinics, financed by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, have made services to prevent and treat tuberculosis available to many living in rural areas and slums.

The lowest number to date was 2017, when 182 people in B.C. were newly diagnosed with HIV.

Today, many new treatments are improving the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS.

About 7,800 of HIV patients receive medication and are aged between 25 and 35 years old, representing 42 percent of all cases detected voluntarily.

Knowledge is the key to helping those who are infected.

"Over 13,000 cases of infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), more than 6,000 cases of AIDS and nearly 2,500 AIDS-related deaths were officially registered in our country in January-October 2019", as reported by the Public Health Center at the Ministry of Health of Ukraine.

Furthermore, data show that population of adolescents and young people aged 15 to 24 living in sub-Saharan Africa will nearly double by 2050, whereas it will decline or remain stable in every other region of the world.

"Over the period from January to October, more than 13,000 cases of HIV-infection were registered in Ukraine".
