Brazil has launched a campaign to enhance people's awareness of HIV/AIDS ahead of the World AIDS Day that falls on Sunday. The theme of this year is "Communities make the difference".

"A person without detectable HIV can not transmit HIV". "So, our important mission is to inform people on prevention, eliminate false beliefs, provide early diagnosis and timely treatment", she noted.

She said, "It is sensational to say that 60,000 people living with HIV in Lagos are missing or on the run".

A total of 221 new HIV cases have been reported in the state from January to October this year while there are 17 HIV cases that have reached the stage of AIDS during the same period.

The number of new AIDS cases fell 13.6 percent from 2014 to 2018 due to easier access to medical treatment, said the ministry.

Referring to the national HIV prevention and control program, she stated that 23 ministries, organizations, and NGOs are cooperating in this regard.

According to NAIIS, HIV prevalence ranks highest among persons aged 15 and 64 years in the Eti-Osa Local Government Area with 3.3 per cent, while Alimosho Local Government Area ranked lowest in the survey with 0.2 per cent prevalence.

Panaji: The Goa State AIDS Control Society (GSACS) has sought the support of the communities to end stigma, and discrimination against patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS).

"The survey revealed that about 120,000 people are living with HIV/AIDS in Lagos". "Los Angeles County has the second largest HIV epidemic in the country and we must continue to educate everyone on how to prevent new infections".
