STORYLINE:

On the 40th anniversary of the first reported cases of AIDS, UNAIDS released a new report outlining the latest data and trends in the HIV pandemic. Currently, 37.6 million people globally were living with HIV in 2020 and 1.5 million became newly infected with HIV last year. A record 27.4 million people were accessing antiretroviral therapy, but 690,000 people died from AIDS-related illnesses in 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted failures within health systems around the world in dealing with not one pandemic but two.

In the Philippines, the HIV response has been hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, especially access to HIV prevention and treatment services. Government figures show that compared to 2019, in 2020 HIV testing decreased by 61% and enrolment in HIV care reduced by 28 percent. The Philippines has the fastest-growing HIV epidemic in Asia and the Pacific, with infections jumping by 207 percent in the last ten years.

Almost 50 per cent of new HIV infections are among men who are between the age of 15–24.

Risky behavior among men having sex with men starts early (age 12) while protected sex begins late (age 19), according to the Philippines Health department.

To bring rising HIV infections among young people under control, the Philippines amended its national AIDS Law in 2018. The age of consent to HIV testing, without parental or guardian’s consent, was reduced from 18 to 15 years old. Despite the law change, the pace to scale up HIV prevention services, including condom promotion, PrEP (medicine people at risk of HIV take to prevent getting HIV from sex or injecting drug use) and testing innovations, remains slow.

More than half of people living with HIV in the Philippines are not on antiretroviral treatment (57 percent.)
