Russia, Ukraine, Belarus have highest rates of newly diagnosed HIV in Europe

State medical and health authorities have started community based HIV testing based on the theme formulated by the United Nations Epidemic: HIV Rates Keep Rising in Eastern Europe

The rate of new HIV infections reached a decade-long high in Europe previous year, raising an "alarm bell" ahead of the 30th anniversary of World Aids Day on Saturday. Some 37 million people worldwide are infected with HIV.

"We need to unite to avert a full-blown HIV epidemic by taking immediate preventive measures, encourage HIV testing and treatment, and addressing HIV associated stigma and discrimination to reduce the number of new HIV infections".

The estimate in the East 51.1 new cases detected per 100,000 people was inordinately excessive than in the West, which possessed a rate of 6.4 new cases per 100,000 people.

"The significance in this report is that we can see a sharp difference between Eastern Europe and the European Union where the number of HIV infection numbers is dropping".

While PHE has celebrated the United Kingdom being one of the first countries to meet the UNAIDS targets, it said that more can be done to eliminate HIV in the UK.

The WHO's European Region is made up of 53 countries with a combined population of almost 900 million.

"Where human rights for LGBT (people) are not accepted, and are not free and protected for everyone, there can not be efficient HIV prevention", Yoursky said.

"It is hard to speak of good news, if one looks to another year with unacceptable high probability of paying back", says Zsuzsanna Jakap, Director of the WHO Regional Office Europe. The earlier the condition is diagnosed, the more successful treatment is likely to be, so it is very important to get tested if you think there's a chance that you might have contracted HIV.

Among the types of data the CDC collects: the number and population rates of HIV diagnoses, the number of people living with HIV and the number of people receiving HIV medical care.

He added: "With an estimated 8,000 people still unaware of their infection, it is vital that people seek out an HIV test if they consider themselves at risk, or accept the offer of a HIV test by a healthcare professional, as early diagnosis is key to stopping transmission".

The Chamber of the capital will launch on Wednesday the campaign "stop HIV is in our hands", with the aim of "increasing the knowledge of the population" regarding the prevention and transmission of the AIDS virus. Injecting drugs and heterosexual intercourse are the most common reasons for the transmission of the disease in this region. Life expectancy can be near-normal if diagnosed early and treated promptly. 31 (41%) new HIV diagnoses were made at a late stage. Participants expressed governments' firm commitment to scale up efforts to implement the Action Plan for the Health Sector Response to HIV in the WHO European Region and achieve the 90-90-90 targets.
