Epidemic: HIV Rates Keep Rising in Eastern Europe

While PHE has celebrated the United Kingdom being one of the first countries to meet the UNAIDS targets, it said that more can be done to eliminate HIV in the UK.

"We still have a chance today as Pakistan is confronted with a concentrated HIV epidemic that can be addressed by a focused and targeted approach", he said.

Eastern Europe and Central Asia is one of only two regions where overall HIV prevalence has not declined in recent years.

Vytenis Andriukaitis, European commissioner for health and food safety, said that, to make further progress, health officials will have to "overcome the stigma of HIV infection and treatment and continue our efforts in dispelling false beliefs about how HIV and AIDS are spread". This is the largest number of HIV diagnoses, which was ever pronounced in the Region. For this reason, all the people should with a possible risk of infection regularly get tested for HIV, even if you feel healthy.

Despite the huge progress made in controlling the global endemic since the 1980s, Europe saw almost 160,000 new HIV cases in 2017.

Is detected the disease early and consistently treated, can be lowered the amount of virus in the body so far that it is in the case of Tests undetectable, and the Affected are not contagious.

With an early diagnosis and effective treatments most people with HIV can avoid Aids-related illnesses. Every second person diagnosed with HIV has already reached an advanced stage in the infection. World Health Organization says that within the European Union, new diagnoses actually fell. The good news is the agencies said that the rate at which HIV diagnoses increased in 2017 slowed down. This is mainly in areas where high risk group people live and also in areas where some people involve in high risk behaviour by visiting commercial sex workers. "To support people living with HIV and protect those at higher risk of infection, we need to fast track action by tailoring interventions". The predominant modes of transmission in these countries were heterosexual transmission and transmission through injecting drug use.

The Chamber of the capital will launch on Wednesday the campaign "stop HIV is in our hands", with the aim of "increasing the knowledge of the population" regarding the prevention and transmission of the AIDS virus. Participants expressed governments' firm commitment to scale up efforts to implement the Action Plan for the Health Sector Response to HIV in the WHO European Region and achieve the 90-90-90 targets.

Consequently, the report emphasizes that new infections would have to decline by 78 percent by 2020 in order to meet specific World Health Organization and Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS objectives.
