The Health Ministry says in a news release on Sunday, World AIDS Day, that there were 208 new cases of the virus in 2018, a steady decline from 437 cases in 2004.

An estimated 7,271 British Columbians are now living with HIV, the province noted in a statement.

Latest Statistics from the NAS and United Nations agencies show that the new infection rate of HIV continues to decline in the country.

A total of 38 million people are living with HIV / AIDS, according to the latest global statistics, and despite worldwide efforts to eradicate the disease and the possibility of infection by 2030, the resources available to treat patients decreased by $1billion in 2018.

By 2020, 90% of all people living with HIV will know their HIV status, 90% of all people with diagnosed HIV infection will receive sustained antiretroviral therapy and 90% of all people receiving antiretroviral therapy will have viral suppression.

Zafar Mirza emphasized the need for creating awareness among the people and removing the stigma surrounding the HIV/AIDS.

At the height of the AIDS crisis in the late 1980s and early '90s, close to 850 cases were being reported annually, Dix said. "It's no surprise that the DNC would attack this President and ignore the facts on World AIDS Day instead of honoring and remembering those we have lost".

The Power to the People report by UNAIDS showed that where people living with and affected by HIV were engaged in decision-making and HIV service delivery, new infections declined and HIV patients gained access to treatment.

She gave special credit to Dr. Julio Montaner, executive director and physician-in-chief at the BCCfE, and his team for their work in reducing the impacts "of what was once a death sentence".

And new HIV infections among children have declined by 72 per cent, from 370 in 2010 to less than 200 a year ago.

The government expanded public funding for pre- and post-exposure prophylaxis medication on January 1, 2018.

The celebration of World AIDS Day represents an alliance of all shared experiences to recall the collective responsibility to end the suffering of people living with HIV as well as to provide maximum prevention and treatment for these people.

National AIDS Authority (NAA) secretary-general Chhim Khin Dareth told The Post that high risks of AIDS infections involve gay people, sex workers, and young people.
