STORYLINE:

A new report, In Danger, is being launched ahead of the International AIDS Conference in Montreal, Canada. The report shows that globally the number of new infections dropped only 3.6 percent between 2020 and 2021, the smallest annual decline in new HIV infections since 2016.

Globally, more than 1.5 million people became infected with HIV last year. That’s 4,000 people every day, more than a quarter of them young people aged 15-24. Worldwide, an adolescent girl or young woman acquires HIV every two minutes.

Since 2014, Venezuela has suffered the deepest economic depression and largest forced displacement with six million of its citizens fleeing the country. Political turmoil and international sanctions have meant that people have been struggling with food and basic essentials.

The country’s health system has also collapsed. Many people living with HIV have not been able to get HIV treatment due to massive stock shortages.

Thanks to a community-based project, searching and linking people living with HIV to the Venezuelan health system and community monitoring of ARVs, Victor and Eduardo were able to get treatment and follow-up care. Like them, more than 60,000 people living with HIV are now connected or reconnected to the health system.

Led by the Venezuelan Network of Positive People (RVG+) and Acción Ciudadana Contra el Sida (ACCSI), along with more than 20 Venezuelan civil society organisations, they united to strengthen community outreach and monitoring of people living with HIV. Incorporating a system known as KoBo ToolBox—a free and open-source, solar-powered platform for collecting and managing data in challenging environments and humanitarian emergencies— they have real-time data regarding treatment, patient needs or other.

Globally, the number of people on HIV treatment grew more slowly in 2021 than it has in over a decade. And while three-quarters of all people living with HIV have access to antiretroviral treatment (28.7m), approximately 10 million people do not, and only half (52 percent) of children living with HIV have access to lifesaving medicine; the gap in HIV treatment coverage between children and adults is increasing rather than narrowing.

Although affordable treatments are available to prevent most AIDS-related deaths, 650,000 people died of AIDS-related illnesses in 2021.

The AIDS Conference is taking place in Montreal, Canada from 29 July to 2 August.
