The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV and AIDS (UNAIDS) says the HIV/AIDS epidemic could end in 15 years if ‘fast-track targets’ are accelerated in the next six years - if not, infection rates could continue to rise.
The UN agency says if these targets are reached, 20.6-million AIDS-related deaths will be averted by 2030 and 27.9-million new adult HIV infections and 5.9-million infections among children will also decrease.
It says that, “Ending the Aids epidemic as a global health threat is no longer a dream. It can be a reality within 15 years if we accelerate action today.”
