The theme of World Aids Day for this year is "Know Your Status".

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention should be ashamed of itself for failing to take the opportunity to promote safer sex and condom use on the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of the first World AIDS Day, said Michael Weinstein, President of AIDS Healthcare Foundation. There is a more than 30 per cent reduction in AIDS related deaths since 2010 and people living with HIV are living longer, healthier lives thanks to the sustained access to antiretroviral therapy.

A British politician has been given a standing ovation in the House of Commons after revealing he has been HIV positive for 10 years. In the male population over 60 years old, HIV/AIDS cases increased by 136% in five years, from 8,391 cases in 2012 to almost 20,000 cases in 2017.

According to Dr. Opondo, once you're 12 years of age and over, you should be tested at least once for HIV.

"The buyers' clubs in the 1980s challenged policy-makers and academics to think about patient autonomy and access to health care, but also the barriers in the medical marketplace across different countries", said Richert, of the University of Strathclyde in Scotland.

"There is also the discrimination around how sexual partners might view you and do view you and how employees view you". He stressed on the Health Department's need for support from the Church, RRCs, institutions & NGOs in fighting against HIV & AIDS.

Last year, Health Minister Rekawt Hamarashid stated that no cases of AIDS were registered among those from the Kurdistan Region and that only 26 cases of were identified among foreigners visiting the region, after which they were immediately deported back to their countries.

The charity said that misinformation around HIV still causes stigma, which impacts many people living with HIV.

"Most of our HIV infections are in men who have sex with men, people of color, the transgender populations, but anybody can be affected by HIV, not just those populations", said Graven.

He said: "He ended up coming out when he knew he was standing down".

Recognising that mandatory testing would drive those at high risk of HIV infection beyond reach and prevent their access to public health preventive activities and other health services, the Government promotes voluntary confidential counselling and testing. Mr. Seymour said the theme reminds people of the importance of getting tested.

The statements of commitment come as sexual health charity the Terrance Higgins Trust (THT) called for an end to the stigma faced by people living with the virus.

"People are not focussing much attention on this issue. That my story might encourage others to get tested and ultimately begin their treatment earlier on".
