HIV epidemic spreads at alarming rate in Pakistan: WHO

Moeti said that leaders can achieve better results in reducing the spread of the virus by expanding community-based options and innovations to reach beyond health facilities.

"In all this, we need the political will; we need the investment from governments, partners and private sectors, and most of all we need the communities to promote demand for HIV testing services".

The UNAIDS 90-90-90 initiative states that by 2020, 90 percent of all people living with HIV will know their status, 90 percent of all people with diagnosed HIV infection will receive sustained antiretroviral therapy and 90 percent of all people receiving antiretroviral therapy will have viral suppression.

In conclusion, her message to the public is that people who are living with HIV and Aids are also human beings and they shouldn't be discriminated against because it can and does affect all of us. More than 35 million people have died of AIDS or AID-related illnesses, making it one of the most destructive pandemics in history since being discovered in 1984.

It's part of a campaign with GCN magazine, to raise awareness and encourage people to know their HIV status. "It's important to improve the lives of people in London living with HIV".

According to World Aids Globally, there are an estimated 36.7 million people who have the virus. Most people are afraid of the stigma associated with HIV testing that prevents them from getting themselves checked in the first place. The Minister's demonstration of HIV oral self testing in front of the crowd was a major milestone in breaking down lingering fears around HIV testing - in his remarks, he noted that HIV testing should have no more stigma than testing for malaria or hypertension. "Our HIV Clinic offers non-discriminatory, confidential and comprehensive services to clients from throughout the state".

"Many of those who are being left behind are those who are more affected by HIV including people who use drugs, sex workers, men who have sex with men and prisoners".

She said that this would enable all people have access to the services they need without facing financial hardship.
