On World AIDS Day, Trump Vows To End Epidemic In 10 Years

On World AIDS Day, Trump Vows To End Epidemic In 10 Years

In western and central Europe and North America, however, almost 80% of people with HIV have access to ART, resulting in extremely low AIDS-related death rates compared to other world regions.

The first HIV infection case was reported in Myanmar in 1988 and the first AIDS case was identified in 1990.

According to the statistical data of AIDS Epidemic Model-AEM, there were about 237,000 people living with HIV nationwide and its prevalence rate is at 0.57 percent in the country past year.

Treatment as Prevention (TasP), which was pioneered in B.C., means using advanced anti-retroviral drugs to treat HIV, which both improves the health and quality of life of the person with the disease - but also can reduce their viral load to an undetectable level, which makes the risk of transmission approach zero.

Government has prepared a national action plan to check the spread of AIDS, stated Special Assistant on National Health Services Dr Zafar Mirza while leading a walk in Islamabad on Monday regarding raising awareness about the HIV/AIDS.

"Sometimes people say, 'Is that still a thing?' And yes, it definitely is", said Chris Chapman, who is part of UW Health's HIV/AIDS Comprehensive Care Program.

If the team was, say, 3-9 instead of 6-6, it likely would have forced Jones' hand, despite his aversion to in-season firings. Ignorance is bliss to the Cowboys' head man, who's mastered the art of coach-speak during his decade-long reign in Dallas.


The cumulative number of people living with HIV who have failed to follow up is 989 - with 369 in pre-ART (Anti Retroviral Therapy) and 620 on post ART.

The implementation of the Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission Programme had seen transmission of HIV reduced to 0.2%.

The SCHD advises that members of the public get tested and know their HIV status. The CHCC provides prevention and testing services, which aim to prevent infections before they occur and reduce the impact on people who are affected, in addition to treatment options.

HIV is a lifelong diagnosis, but the disease is better understood than even just a few years ago and treatment is available.

Del Rio said researchers are challenged with inadequate health care systems, in addition to a lack of a preventative vaccine or a cure for the disease.
