Latest situation on World AIDS and stories

 

Progress on the global HIV epidemic front has been mixed. Since 2010, there has been significant success in the prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT), however, in recent years that progress has stalled. While new HIV infections among younger children are on the decline, new HIV infections among adolescents are decreasing too slowly to substantially reduce their overall risk. HIV treatment – the access to and uptake of antiretroviral treatment (ART) – for children living with HIV has seen weaker progress compared to pregnant mothers living with the virus.

These variations in progress are especially evident across regions and countries. Nine out of 10 children aged 0-19 years living with HIV are in sub-Saharan Africa. The following snapshots below focus on the global HIV epidemic, progress and the case stories in the regions hit the hardest, which are suitable as the study reference of Liberal Studies.
