1, and San Antonio is marking the one year anniversary of its participation in an global program to get people tested, diagnosed, and treated for the disease.

HIV infection is often diagnosed through rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs), which detect the presence or absence of HIV antibodies.

In addition, there is the need to intensify awareness, regular and continuous access to HIV prevention materials, treatment, care and support services.

At the 13 th International AIDS Conference held in Durban in July 2000 eleven-year-old Nkosi, dressed in a suit, holding a microphone and showing a wide smile revealing his pearly white teeth, stood on stage.

She added that December 1 was a day for remembering those who have lost their lives to Aids-related illnesses, as well as remembering to support those now living with HIV. And to effectively monitor viral load, people living with HIV need access to viral load testing every 12 months.

These were ambitious targets set by global charity UNAIDS to ensure as many people as possible knew they had the condition and received the appropriate treatment. AIDS remains the leading cause of death in women aged 15 to 44, and the second-largest mortality factor for teenagers worldwide. In his message marking the 30th anniversary of World Aids Day on Saturday, Health Minister Dwayne Seymour reminded the public that early detection and proper treatment can ensure that people with HIV can still live long and healthy lives. The number could be higher, said the health officials.

To combat the spread of HIV, Chinese universities across the country have launched awareness campaigns, which include hanging a lot of red banners and handing out booklets on AIDS - some over 80 pages thick! - to students.

TCE Field Officers and volunteers build relationships with communities to provide access to HIV testing in hard-to-reach areas and among the at-risk populations. The country was also reported to have the largest antiretroviral treatment (ART) programme in the world, which had undergone even more expansion in recent years with the implementation of "test and treat" guidelines. 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.

Castrejana said he was scared of people's reaction.

Based on Basic Health Research data in 2018, only 1 percent of the people have a complete knowledge of HIV in general, the transmission and prevention, and the way to check it. "People are living now", Graven also said.

Over the past year, Fast-Track in San Antonio cut the length of time it takes for someone who tests positive to get into treatment by almost half.
