Tuberculosis TB is the leading HIV-associated opportunistic infection in low- and middle- income countries, and it is a leading cause of death globally among people living with HIV.

The following chart shows international and domestic spending on HIV, broken down by donor, and region in low- and middle-income countries. Previously, we have seen that AIDs deaths are still steadily increasing in the Middle East and North Africa, which may partially be due to the lack of domestic resources placed on ART therapy in this region.
Discrimination towards those living with HIV remains common in many countries. High-coverage data on discrimination is scarce, however in the charts below we see the share of the population with discriminatory attitudes across a number of countries. The presented figures show the share of respondents who had previously heard of HIV who said they would not buy from a vendor with HIV.
In a number of countries more than half of respondents showed discriminatory attitudes. In Guinea, this share was as high as 80 percent. The usual antiretroviral therapy regimen combines three or more different medicines, such as two nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors NRTI and a protease inhibitor, two nucleoside analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitors and a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor NNRTI , or other combinations.
More recently, entry inhibitors and integrase inhibitors have joined the range of treatment options. Suboptimal regimens are monotherapy and dual therapy. The term highly active antiretroviral therapy was commonly used after the demonstration of excellent virological and clinical response to combinations of three or more antiretroviral medicines. Highly active is not needed as a qualification, however, and the term is no longer commonly used. ARV refers to antiretroviral medicines. It should only be used when referring to the medicines themselves and not to their use.
The population may be all of the inhabitants of a given geographic area, the population of a school or similar institution or everyone of a certain age or sex such as the children or women of a region. An epidemic may be restricted to one locale an outbreak , be more general an epidemic or be global a pandemic.
Common diseases that occur at a constant but relatively high rate in the population are said to be endemic. The test result of a person who has acquired HIV but is in the window period between HIV exposure and detection of antibodies also will be negative. Results may occasionally be false-positive, especially in infants up to 18 months of age who are carrying maternal antibodies. Cumulative incidence may be expressed as the number of new cases arising in a given period in a specified population.
UNAIDS reports the estimated number of incident cases that occurred in the past year among people aged 15—49 years and 0—14 years. Young people play a game about HIV knowledge at an event to promote sexual and reproductive health among adolescents. UNICEF supports governments and communities in their efforts to reduce inequities in HIV service delivery and to address the underlying factors of gender, age and poverty that make people vulnerable to HIV. UNICEF supports governments to deliver services that prevent mother-to-child transmission, test infants early, link children diagnosed with HIV to treatment and care and prevent new HIV infections in adolescents.
To do this, UNICEF implements country-specific priorities and interventions and integrates HIV prevention and treatment with maternal, newborn and child health, nutrition, and early childhood development services. We also strengthen and leverage partnerships to widen the reach and impact of our efforts on the ground. Increased access to lifelong treatment for pregnant and breastfeeding women has significantly reduced the number of HIV infections among children. Since , the number of children 0—19 years newly infected with HIV decreased by 49 per cent, and 1.
Read more on this project. They enable infants infected with HIV to start treatment earlier and help reduce mortality in the early months of their lives. If current trends continue 1. Young children are often diagnosed and treated too late. In sub-Saharan Africa, nearly three times as many adolescent girls were newly infected with HIV in , compared with adolescent boys 15—19 years. The world pledged to end AIDS by While we have seen remarkable progress in the past decade among children aged years, adolescents have been left behind in HIV prevention efforts.
A staggering , adolescents are projected to die of AIDS-related diseases between and without additional investment in HIV prevention, testing and treatment programs. It tells a compelling story about successes achieved over the course of the epidemic, the difficulties encountered and the challenges overcome, and what lies ahead on the continuing road to ending AIDS for children and for all.
Yet, due to its lower HIV prevalence rate, the epidemic has received less attention than in other regions. In recent years, the number of people accessing life-saving drugs has soared, yet children and adolescents have not equally benefited from the scale-up of treatment.
