World AIDS Day 2016

Hands up for HIVprevention

The decline in new HIV infections among adults has stalled. The UNAIDS Prevention gap report shows that worldwide an estimated 1.9 million adults have become infected with HIV every year for at least the past five years and that the number of new HIV infections is rising in some regions. The report shows that HIV prevention efforts must be reinvigorated if the world is to stay on the Fast-Track to ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.  

Hands up campaign In the lead-up to World AIDS Day 2016, the hands up for #HIVprevention campaign will explore different aspects of HIV prevention and how they relate to specific groups of people, such as adolescent girls and young women, key populations and people living with HIV. Starting in September, the campaign will also offer people a space to express their views on what they think needs to be done to strengthen HIV prevention efforts. 

Countdown to 1 December 2016. Week 9: condoms

More than 2 million people are infected with HIV every year. The world must take urgent & immediate action to close the HIVprevention gap. Condoms are an integral and essential part of comprehensive & sustainable #HIVprevention programmes.
