Urge policy-makers to promote a “health for all” agenda for HIV and related health services, such as tuberculosis (TB), hepatitis and noncommunicable diseases.

Event : World AIDS Day

When : 01 December 2018

Theme : Know Your Status

The world pledged to end AIDS by 2030. While we have seen remarkable progress in the past decade among children aged 0-9 years, adolescents have been left behind in HIV prevention efforts. A staggering 360,000 adolescents are projected to die of AIDS-related diseases between 2018 and 2030 without additional investment in HIV prevention, testing and treatment programs.

On World AIDS Day 2018, UNICEF is releasing global and regional snapshots of the world today and a new analysis of the situation for children and adolescents projected to 2030.

  1. Be careful about thinking that condoms provide such complete protection from HIV infection. The virus is very small and there are some latex condoms that have microscopic gaps in them that allow the virus to pass through the walls of the condom. As well, condoms can tear or break during intercourse.
