The strategy, which focuses on making antiretroviral therapy widely available to patients, has since been adopted by China, Brazil, Panama and other countries in their own fights against HIV and AIDS, according to the province.

A total of 38 million people are living with HIV / AIDS, according to the latest worldwide statistics, and despite global efforts to eradicate the disease and the possibility of infection by 2030, the resources available to treat patients decreased by $1billion in 2018. "American leadership has proven that together we can save lives".

"Ultimately, it's up to each person to take responsibility for their health and that of their loved ones". Mothers with untreated HIV can give it to their babies during pregnancy and birth, and mothers who are HIV positive cannot breastfeed their children. Previous year it was slightly up, at 199 people - but still a far cry from the epidemic's peak in the 1990s, when in 1996 more than 700 people were diagnosed in the province.

The government has said it has been relentless in its mission to turn the HIV, Aids and TB epidemics around, and that there were notable achievements to celebrate. The MACS also informed that the cumulative number of people living with HIV who started on ART are 3804. "It allows people to get tested", said Noah Beacom, a prevention specialist from The Project.

For the third year, they celebrated with singers, dancers, and testimonies from people who have been affected by the disease but not beaten by it.

The CDC attributes the high number of HIV diagnoses in the South to socioeconomic factors like poverty and unemployment, as well as barriers such as a lack of health insurance.

Del Rio said researchers are challenged with inadequate health care systems, in addition to a lack of a preventative vaccine or a cure for the disease. Using condoms correctly can significantly reduce your chances of passing on STDs to your partner or partners, and are also effective at preventing pregnancy.
