The headteachers MP and Secretary of State for Education

Testing is therefore a vital element in preventing further spread of the virus and ensuring that those with HIV have a better quality of life.

The National AIDS Control Programme in collaboration with UNAIDS, World Health Organisation (WHO) and other partners held an event on 30th anniversary of World AIDS Day.

"We have made tremendous progress in the global fight against HIV/AIDS".

A new survey of 1,350 people with HIV conducted by the charity, released to mark the 30th World Aids Day, found 50% of people said they had experienced discrimination due to their HIV status.

Awareness talks were given to the visitors going round the stalls on the importance of using condoms without fail for prevention of HIV and STI and RTI diseases.

Only eight percent of the population has been tested for HIV or AIDS. They are connected with healthcare providers to improve treatment uptake, and TCE Field Officers undertake follow-up services at the peoples homes.

He also called on the Ghana Health Service and other health training schools to make it a subject of concern in the training schools such that it would provide more insight to trainee nurses.

She said that in some parts of the region, HIV testing and access to treatment was still lacking and urged leaders to have stronger political will, commitment and increase investment to achieve universal health coverage in all states.

Asked by the Press Association why he had made a decision to reveal his status, Mr Russell-Moyle said: "I felt like I had a duty as a Member of Parliament - a few months ago I was giving out awards, congratulating people who have spoken out about their HIV status, saying how fearless they were, and there was a feeling in the back of my mind saying "Well, if I'm congratulating people, I also need to be so courageous to do that". New HIV diagnoses in NY declined for a third consecutive year, reaching an all-time low of 2,769 in 2017, down 20 percent since 2014. We saw the death rate go from 98% to about 2%. We now know of cases of young men who have tried to gain access to PrEP, who have been turned away and who have subsequently contracted HIV.

Since its inception 20 years ago, the MTV Staying Alive Foundation has pioneered a youth movement in the relentless fight against HIV, proudly supporting youth-led initiatives and empowering change-makers across the globe, said Georgia Arnold, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the MTV Staying Alive Foundation.

Over the past four years, New York State has committed more than $20 million to fund Health Department policies and programs created to meet Ending the Epidemic goals.
