The Union government has set sights on reducing new HIV infections by 75% in the country by 2020. Since the start of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, an estimated 78 million people have become infected and more than 35 million have died.

"The Region of the Americas has made important progress in the fight against AIDS and part of this is down to the fact that over three-quarters of people living with HIV have been tested and nearly 80 percent of them are now in treatment", said Dr. Marcos Espinal, Director of the PAHO/WHO Department of Communicable Diseases and Environmental Determinants of Health.

This is particularly important given that approximately one third of new HIV infections occur among young people aged 15 to 24 years old.
