British MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle: I am HIV Positive

- One in four people, about 9 million, are unaware that they are HIV-positive. South Africa is known to be one of the African countries with a high prevalence rate of the disease.

Labour MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle has revealed he is living with HIV in an emotional speech to Parliament ahead of World AIDS Day.

HIV preventive and treatment services have been scaled up to more than 90 percent of health facilities across the country, figures of Rwanda Biomedical Center showed. Despite the virus only being identified in 1984, more than 35 million people have died of HIV or AIDS, making it one of the most destructive pandemics in history.

There were approximately 36.9 million people worldwide living with HIV at the end of 2017, with an estimated 1.8 million people becoming newly infected.

Knowing your HIV status has many advantages.

HIV treatment can reduce viruses in the blood (also known as viral load) and other bodily fluids to undetectable levels.

The TCE programme is based on community mobilization, HIV testing, tuberculosis screening, referrals to treatment, and support for HIV treatment adherence.

He added: "Those who have HIV or who have recently been diagnosed should know that they are free to pursue every aspect of public life without hindrance".

He said: "We now know of cases of young men who have tried to gain access to PrEP, who have been turned away and who have subsequently contracted HIV".

"Just ask your doctor, because many doctors' offices are ready to offer HIV tests", Opondo said.

According to Dr. Opondo, once you're 12 years of age and over, you should be tested at least once for HIV.

"I have actually seen people not take promotions or not take raises because they fear losing their assistance through the AIDS Drug Assistance Program", Junjulas said. This milestone was achieved in an HIV testing campaign being done by ADPP Mozambique through HOPE Maputo project.

In coping with the target, Indonesia has applied a particular mechanism called the Fast Track 90-90-90 since 2017, according to Health Ministry Spokesperson Widyawati. In 2017, TCE in Namibia reached 50,623 people with testing, of whom 3,917 tested HIV positive. They were seeing people die. For those who are sexually active, Opondo says the best way to protect against HIV is to practice "safer sexual behaviours, from using condoms to limiting your partners, to being monogamous".
