“Today, 15 million people are receiving HIV treatment to save their lives. Rich or poor, the right to health is everything, ”said the UN chief.
“Fifteen years ago, there was a conspiracy of silence. AIDS was a disease of the 'other' and the treatment was for the rich.
They were wrong, that today we have 15 million people on treatment, 15 million success stories, “said Michel Sidibé, executive director of UNAIDS.
To achieve eradication by 2030, it will be necessary to achieve that 95% of HIV-positive people are aware of their condition, 95% receive treatment and that 95% exclude their viral load.
And for such it will be necessary to mobilize the patient, educate and promote the economic independence of women and adolescents, as well as put an end to discrimination against people's medical research and HIV-positive advancement.

UN believes that the response to HIV demands a “smarter” health investment and global development pattern that ends up generating great results for citizens and economies in all countries.
