What’s the Status of AIDS in China?

A volunteer hangs red ribbons, the universal symbol of awareness and support for those living with HIV, to mark World AIDS Day. "Get tested, volunteer, donate, support someone with HIV or even talk about HIV is always a good start, but also look for ways to be engaged and present more throughout the year to destigmatize HIV". Also the same Trump who has fired all the members of his HIV/AIDS Council, gutted HIV/AIDS resources and other vital health services, is criminalizing drug use and opioid addiction while cutting funding for treatment - both of which actions, health experts say, will increase HIV rates and the likelihood of major HIV and hepatitis C outbreaks - and once hilariously joked that Pence's view of the gay community was that he "wants to hang them all".

Almost a million people still die every year from AIDS.

He continued: "It is so important for people living with HIV to be better represented across public and political spheres, and as a serving MP to be openly living with the virus, Lloyd is already impacting positive change".

Positive mental health is associated with improved physical health outcomes across a range of chronic illnesses, including HIV however when a negative psychological response is attached to an HIV diagnosis, it can result in disease progression, worsening stigma, loss of social support and an increase in mental health problems in those individuals.

Based on the latest data by UNAIDS 36.9 million people globally were living with HIV in 2017. "World AIDS Day sets aside a time for the world to be reminded of how far we've come and how much farther we still have to go". In 1981, the US Centre for Diseases Control (CDC) released its first HIV-related announcement describing the cases of a group of previously healthy patients in Los Angeles who had developed pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) - what we now know as an AIDS-defining illness.

The notoriety and stigma surrounding AIDS had begun some years before the founding of World AIDS Day.

We know Tim as a man of high integrity and are confident he will grow and learn from this experience". So it was technically a valid point, but you can always phrase things better.

By the inaugural World AIDS Day in 1988 - there was a glimmer of hope.

Dr. Jared Baeten, an HIV specialist at the University of Washington, says even with these tools more people still contract the HIV virus and eventually die from AIDS each year, "because the ability to deliver those at the scale and with the coverage needed to be able to get HIV to go away is not almost where it should be". In order for a country to attain this by 2020, 90 percent of all people living with HIV should know their HIV status.

The number of Russian men who were infected with HIV through having sex with another man more than doubled to 695 between 2008 and 2015, according to official data.

Approximately 1 in 3 deaths among people with HIV is caused by TB.

However, with nearly one in three infected individuals unaware that they carry the virus, stopping its spread remains a challenge. Ukraine keeps the leading position in Europe in terms of new HIV infection cases.

This year, we're celebrating the 20 anniversary of the MTV Staying Alive Foundation.
