AIDS-related deaths are declining in all age groups, except among 10-19 year olds

AIDS-related deaths are declining in all age groups, except among 10-19 year olds, it was heard during the Organisation of African Firsts Ladies against HIV/AIDS (OAFLA) 16th annual General Assembly.
 
Hosted under the theme ‘Advancing sustainable Partnership to end pediatric AIDS and improve Adolescent’, reported that while African Union (AU) member states made great stride in mother to child HIV transmission, there was not targeted care for HIV positive children.
 
“AIDS has become the leading cause of death among adolescents (aged 10-19) in Africa and the second most common cause of death among adolescents globally,” noted one of the organisers, according to a statement.
