WORLD AIDS DAY - INFOGRAPHIC

On the fast-track to end AIDS by 2030


HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) infects cells of the immune system. Infection results in the progressive deterioration of the immune system, breaking down the body's ability to fend some infections and other diseases. AIDS (Acquired immune deficiency syndrome) refers to the most advanced stages of HIV infection.

ART can’t cure HIV infection, but it can help people infected with

HIV live longer, healthier lives. HIV medicines can also reduce the risk of transmission of HIV.

The use of HIV medicines to treat HIV infection is called antiretroviral therapy (ART). HIV is spread through contact with the blood, semen, pre-seminal fluid, rectal fluids, vaginal fluids, or breast milk of a person infected with HIV


36.7 MILLION

people living with HIV

at the end of 2015


17 MILLION

people living with HIV

on ART by end of 2015


HIV is the greatest risk factor

for developing active TB

disease in 2015,

1.2 MILLION

of the 10.4 million people who

developed TB worldwide

were HIV-positive.


THE VISION

ZERO new HIV infections,

ZERO HIV-related deaths and

ZERO HIV-related discrimination in a

world where people living with HIV are able to live long and healthy lives.


FAST TRACK TARGETS


BY 2020

90-90-90

Treatment

500,000

new infections among adults

ZERO

Discrimination


BY 2030

95-95-95

Treatment

200,000

new infections among adults

ZERO

Discrimination


90-90-90

• Ensure that 90% of people living with HIV know their HIV status.

• Ensure that 90% of people diagnosed with HIV receive antiretroviral therapy.

• Ensure that 90% of people living with HIV, and who are on treatment achieve

viral load suppression.

500,000

1. Reduce new HIV infections to fewer than 500 000 globally by 2020.

2. Reduce AIDS-related deaths to fewer than 500 000 globally by 2020.

Zero discrimination:

• Review and reform laws that reinforce stigma and discrimination and restrict

access to services, travel restrictions, mandatory testing and punitive laws

related to HIV exposure and transmission by 2020.

• Reach the people who still lack access to comprehensive treatments

preventions, care and support services.


NOTHING other than ZERO DISCRIMINATION

is acceptable Let’s leave NO ONE BEHIND!


Doubling the number of people on treatment


Accelerating prevention outreach


Stopping new HIV infections among children


A new focus on women, adolescent girls, young people and gender equality


The right to health belongs to everyone, everywhere


AIDS out of isolation


Financing the end of AIDS: To fast-track the end of the AIDS epidemic, low-income countries will require US$ 9.7 billion in funding in 2020 and lower-middle-income countries US$ 8.7 billion.

Accountability and sustainability

1. Reduce tuberculosis-related AIDS deaths by 75% by 2020.

2. Reach 90% of all people who need tuberculosis treatment, including 90% of

populations at higher risk, and achieve at least 90% treatment success by 2020.

3. Reduce by 30% new cases of chronic viral hepatitis B and C by 2020.

4. Treat 5 million people with hepatitis B and treat 3 million people with chronic

hepatitis C by 2020.


THE COST OF INACTION WILL BE HUGE

if countries do not scale up HIV prevention and treatment services rapidly

by 2020, but instead continue with the existing coverage levels of

services, they will lose the opportunity to save 21 million lives, and an

additional 28 million people would be living with HIV by 2030. Instead

of averting these deaths and new infections, continuation of current

coverage levels will mean that the world will have to pay an additional

US$ 24 billion every year for antiviral therapy by 2030.

FUTURE OF HIV AND PAKISTAN'S NATIONAL RESPONSE


People living with HIV/AIDS: 102,000 (2015 est)

The greatest source of a spread in the virus was use of drug injections. An estimated one in five people who inject drugs in Pakistan are HIV-positive.

According to UNAIDS, HIV prevalence in Pakistan nearly doubled from 11% in 2005 to 21% in 2008.

Pakistan is going through a transition of HIV epidemic from a low prevalence state to a concentrated epidemic.


2X AIDS CONTROL IN PAKISTAN

Education of masses

Involvement of prominent figures in campaigns

Greater community participation and empowerment

Advanced clinical and basic sciences on HIV

International collaboration interventions

Special focus on high risk groups in all programs

Greater integration between private and public sectors

Greater multi-disciplinary co-ordination


FAST-TRACK TARGETS

Avert 28 million

HIV infections

by 2030


Avert 21 million

AIDS-related

deaths by 2030
