HIV Diagnosis At Its Peak In Eastern Europe

Epidemic: HIV Rates Keep Rising in Eastern Europe

An 'alarm bell': Experts warn HIV has hit a 10 year high in Europe ahead of 30th World Aids Day

The mayor - who is part of the executive led by the socialist Fernando Medina, who came from a city government agreement signed after the last municipal elections - also points out that the partners of the initiative "considered it a priority to carry out public campaigns on the subject" the campaign gives voice to young people who "prevent infection or who live with HIV". The amount of contemporary HIV diagnoses in the area resumed escalating in 2017, but the momentum of the stride of the growth is decelerating according to the report from the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control and the WHO Regional Office for Europe.

This is equivalent to 20 people per 100,000, a rise the 18.2 new diagnoses per 100,000 people in 2016, according to a joint report from the World Health Organization (WHO) and European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).

The number of HIV treatment courses bought by the Russian government rose 37 percent to about 360,000 previous year, according to the Treatment Preparedness Coalition, an NGO. A lot of progress has been made, but there is still much more we must do.

The increase in HIV cases across Eastern Europe is mostly attributed to the insufficiency of preventive measures, Masoud Dara of WHO Europe revealed. We must overcome the stigma of HIV infection and treatment and continue our efforts in dispelling false beliefs about how HIV and AIDS are spread.

The Report covered Region consists of 53 countries, where altogether nearly 900 million people live. "Once diagnosed, individuals are less likely to pass on their infection due to treatment and changing their behaviour, so it is essential for both the person with HIV and anyone with whom they may have sex, that the condition is diagnosed early". For this reason, all the people should with a possible risk of infection regularly get tested for HIV, even if you feel healthy.

Improvement is still needed, with 8% (8,200) of the estimated 102,000 people in the United Kingdom living with HIV unaware of their infection.

EU and European Economic Area countries have seen new HIV infections drop, from 6.9 per 100,000 in 2016 to 5.8 per 100,000 past year. They include successful programmes to offer more frequent and targeted HIV testing to promote earlier diagnosis.

During 2017, of the 84 new cases diagnosed in Northern Ireland, 45 (54%) occurred through MSM transmission, while 26 (31%) occurred through heterosexual transmission. The full extent and consequences of the lack of effective, quality HIV prevention and treatment services for adolescents are unknown because many countries do not publish HIV estimates.
