  • Medical progress over the last 30 years means that people with the virus can live a long and healthy life

The 30th anniversary of World AIDS Day event held in Calgary on Friday featured performances from the Broadway musical Rent by Front Row Centre and choral performances by Calgary Men's Chorus. HIV testing is on the spotlight as the call for knowing ones HIV status, to take an informed stand, is becoming increasingly necessary to save lives.

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. I hope that more people will understand that effective treatment keeps people who are HIV positive healthy, and it protects their partners.

Why should you get tested and know your status?

Humana People to People has built strong relationships with national government health departments and global health organizations.

"A lot of people in that room that are HIV positive didn't see those beginning times when we were losing all of these people, so they don't have the same perspective that we do today". "In this regard, significant progress has been made in the HIV/AIDS response since 1988, and today three in four people living with HIV know their status", Mr. Seymour said. World Health Organization first recommended HIV self-testing in December 2016.

"My research and research in this field really shows you have to address the whole person and their needs in order to address HIV as one of their health concerns", Strathdee said. "HIV in this country is no longer the death sentence it once was.tombs of the 1980s", he said. During the intervening decades, HIV testing services became widely available - routinely through clinical settings and to higher-risk populations through community-based approaches.

People can be at risk of HIV if they have unprotected sexual relations, receive unsafe blood transfusion, and are exposed to contaminated injecting equipment.

- In sub-Saharan Africa young women are twice as likely to be living with HIV than men. This means he's been taking antiretroviral treatment, to reduce the amount of the virus in his body to a level that's undetectable.

It added 59% of adults and 52% of children living with HIV were receiving lifelong antiretroviral therapy (ART) in 2017. According to the New York State Department of Health, the number of new diagnoses each year continues to drop to record lows. "Yet so much of LGBT culture also marked by this spectre of HIV, something that has led to an incredible sense of fear about the disease". In 2017 alone, 940,000 people died from HIV-related causes globally.
