"We need to renew our efforts to ensure that all persons living with HIV are aware of their status, retained on treatment, and empowered and supported to adhere fully. We also need to be more creative in reaching those most at risk so that we can reduce the number of persons becoming newly infected."
Community Leadership Messages
“The social determinants of HIV demand a response that transcends the boundaries of health sectors. We cannot address HIV and AIDS without addressing institutionalized discrimination of women, gender-based violence, poverty, social exclusion and inequality.”
“Treatment as a method of prevention is another benefit of these new guidelines as more PLHIVs are virally suppressed, the risk of transmission decreases. Testing is, therefore, a critical tool in the management and treatment of this disease.”
