New cases of HIV rise in Eastern Europe, decline in the West

New cases of HIV rise in Eastern Europe, decline in the West

Eastern Europe and Central Asia is one of only two regions where overall HIV prevalence has not declined in recent years. Although infections tend to occur as a result of behaviours initiated during adolescence, the HIV diagnosis tends to be established at a later stage.

With an early diagnosis and effective treatments most people with HIV can avoid Aids-related illnesses.

"Where human rights for LGBT (people) are not accepted, and are not free and protected for everyone, there can not be efficient HIV prevention", Yoursky said.

HIV/AIDS is a viral infection caused by type 1 and type 2 HIV retroviruses.

But methadone, which research has shown helps to prevent injecting drug users passing on HIV, is banned in Russian Federation. As a result, the risk increases that the persons Concerned have passed on the Virus.

The increase in HIV cases across Eastern Europe is mostly attributed to the insufficiency of preventive measures, Masoud Dara of WHO Europe revealed.

"We are increasing the number of people who receive antiretroviral therapy, but it's still not enough". These work by preventing the virus from replicating in the body which allows the immune system to fight the virus and prevent further damage.

OPEC and its partners, including Russian Federation , are scheduled to meet in Vienna next week to decide on production targets. The outcome of next week's OPEC meeting "remains clouded by uncertainty", Stephen Brennock of oil broker PVM told Bloomberg.

Studies have shown that a person who is on effective treatment who has an undetectable viral load can not pass on HIV. Last week, a report found 9.4 million people living with HIV worldwide do not know they have the virus. Life expectancy can be near-normal if diagnosed early and treated promptly.

In a report published on 29 November 2018, PHE said the UK had met all of the targets set by the UN to promote HIV prevention, adding that the UK should "identify new priorities that, if achieved, could accelerate the falls in HIV transmission that are well underway".

A total of 1,073 people in the region are now living with the condition.

Dr Neill continued: "People are still contracting HIV here, so I want to stress the importance of taking steps to reduce your likelihood of getting the virus".

The videos will be posted on the official website of the campaign and the camera, and through social networks, while the leaflets "will be distributed in strategic locations", the municipality says. "Our efforts must continue apace in order to eliminate HIV".

With over 130 000 new HIV diagnoses in 2017, the eastern part of the Region observed a rate of increase of 68% in 2008-2017, compared with 95% in 2007-2016. "Now in the United Kingdom, nearly everyone with HIV is not only diagnosed and in treatment but living long, healthy lives - and we're one of just a handful of countries to meet these ambitious UN targets".
