lastest news: Scientists Report a Rare Case of HIV Remission

HIV baby treated at birth is now 'virtually cured' and healthy nine years on without any further treatment

Asean members Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Myanmar and Thailand are among 10 countries that together accounted for more than 95 per cent of all new HIV infections in the Asia-Pacific region a year ago, according to a new report. It will allow the country to design programmes for sex workers to go into treatment after being tested.

"Antimicrobial drug resistance is a growing challenge to global health and sustainable development", said Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General.

Leaders in the fight against HIV on Sunday urged the U.S. government, the largest donor to global AIDS research and treatment, to reject "draconian" funding cuts proposed by President Donald Trump.

Many people have become complacent about HIV since the arrival of cheap and effective ARV treatment meant that no one had to die of Aids any longer and the disease was seen as a nuisance rather than a killer.

"If the vaccine works it really would be a huge advance", said Mitchell Warren, the executive director for New York-based HIV charity AVAC.

Mugabe said it was hard to get data on sex workers and HIV in most countries where their work is a criminal act and "where data is collected, sex workers have extremely high rates of HIV infection compared to the general population".

Worldwide, 36.7 million people are living with HIV and only 53% of them are receiving antiretroviral therapy.

Once the threshold of 10 per cent has been reached, World Health Organization recommends those countries urgently review their HIV treatment programmes.

The number of new HIV infections a year ago.

"While it is good news that so many are now on HIV treatment, 1 million deaths is still too many", Sharonann Lynch, the group's HIV and TB adviser, said in an agency statement.

Tackling HIV drug resistance will require the active involvement of a broad range of partners.

"Jamaica has achieved remarkable progress in expanding HIV testing and is close to achieving the 90 per cent target", UNAIDS Country Director for Jamaica, Manoela Manova, said. "A single dose can last for 48 weeks or more", says Peter Williams of pharmaceutical firm Janssen, who helped lead the project.

This comes as 70 percent of juvenile criminals are reported to be engaging more in sexual offences, fuelling the spread of HIV among children and adolescents. They can live relatively normally, providing they take antiretroviral drugs every day for the rest of their lives.

The report states that the Caribbean island must close the gap on treatment and viral suppression to speed up the process. "When you see this youth wave and you see the risk to young women".

Globally, resources for AIDS response remain flat.

"Since 2011, national HIV incidence in Swaziland dropped by nearly half", a research team led by Velephi Okello of the Swazi health ministry said in a written presentation to an HIV science conference in Paris. The mother disappeared with her child.

Stakeholders at the forum, in addition to highlighting the most urgent areas for research focus in paediatric and adolescent HIV, made recommendations to maximise the impact of new and ongoing research efforts in the field.

United Nations report lists new HIV infections affecting sex workers and their customers, gay men, people using drugs by injections and transgenders among others.
