Elton John Criticizes Russia Over Its Treatment Of LGBT People

Joining delegates to the International AIDS Conference by phone from his Idaho prison, Thomas said that while he regretted not disclosing his HIV status, "I worked with my doctor to protect my partner".

Sure, there has been significant progress in the fight against AIDS in the last two decades, but the failure to prevent the disease from occurring among children is what's ultimately slowing the fight down, according to the report.

Gay men and other men who have sex with men, accounted for 57 per cent of new HIV infections in Europe and North America in 2017, and 41 per cent in Latin America.

A different picture emerges in Nigeria where according to the recently released Joint U.N. Program on HIV/AIDS report for 2018, there are more women in Nigeria living with HIV-particularly adolescent girls and young women-than men.

"The epidemic's spread among adolescent girls is being fuelled by early sex, including with older males, forced sex, powerlessness in negotiating about sex, poverty, and lack of access to confidential counseling and testing services", it pointed out.

El paro vuelve a subir en Córdoba tras dos trimestres de caída
Se crea empleo sobre todo en Servicios (371.400 más) y se pierde en Agricultura (11.300 menos). La evolución del paro en variación anual es del -10,84%.

The AIDS 2018 Conference, being held at the Rai International Convention Centre, is the world's largest meeting on a single global health issue and is being attended by over 15,000 researchers, activists and policymakers, representing over 160 countries.

Women and girls also need access to HIV prevention. Robert Matiru, director of operations for Unitaid, which funds HIV drug projects, said young people are disproportionately affected by the epidemic that has claimed some 35 million lives since it erupted in the 1980s. "Unless we can reach young people and curb the epidemic among them. then we're not going to meet the targets" of the United Nations to end AIDS as a public health threat by 2030.

Describing his appeal as a "wake-up call" to the global community, Sidibé explained that "partial successes" in saving lives and stopping new infections some 1.4 million since 2010 had resulted in a lack of urgency among Member States. In 2017, around 6500 women and girls were infected with HIV every week.

The president of the International Aids Society (IAS), Linda-Gail Bekker, also pointed out to French news agency AFP that part of the problem was decreasing awareness about AIDS in recent year.

The risk of HIV transmission from a single act of unprotected sex is very low, and there is no possibility of transmission during either vaginal or anal sex if the HIV-positive partner has an undetectable viral load.
