Recent advances include the approval of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), a once-a-day pill that prevents HIV infection among people who are at risk, as well as significant improvement in HIV treatment methods.

"The Region of the Americas has made important progress in the fight against AIDS and part of this is down to the fact that over three-quarters of people living with HIV have been tested and nearly 80 percent of them are now in treatment".

Telangana State Chief Secretary S.K. Joshi has given an indication that HIV positive persons with higher educational qualifications will be given priority in the recruitment by government departments. By 2017, 75% of the people estimated to be living with HIV (28 million out of 37 million) had accessed HIV testing and been diagnosed.

This year's theme for World AIDS Day, which is marking its 30th anniversary today 1st December, is "Know your status". This has resulted in reducing child mortality by 20% and reducing the rate of new infections by 44%.

Deputy President David Mabuza says he's encouraged that more young people are finally standing up against the stigma and the scourge of the HIV/Aids, as well as drug abuse and other social ills.

"Thus, we must intensify our collective efforts to meet the serious challenges to eliminating the spread of HIV/AIDS among young people in Nigeria and Lagos State, in order to move towards a HIV-free generation by 2020", Dabiri said.

Over 30 years ago, in 1986, World Health Organization first evaluated rapid diagnostic tests for HIV. The agency's also reminding people ME that HIV care and prevention have dramatically changed since the discovery of the virus in 1984, and many patients are able to live long lives.

"Knowing your status is the entry point of accessing HIV services and those who turn positive are given anti-retroviral drugs free of charge".

She stated that one out of four persons infected with HIV might not know for about two - four years.

2006 - Male circumcision is found to reduce the sexual transmission of HIV between men and women by 60 percent. However, it is also an important reminder that despite progress made, the world can not become complacent in its response to HIV.
