Lloyd Russell Moyle speaking in Parliament

Commenting on his disclosure, Russell-Moyle said: "This Saturday 1st December will mark the 30th Anniversary of World AIDS day, and next year it will be ten years since I became HIV positive".

"In addition, more than three in five (15.3 million) people are accessing life-saving antiretroviral therapy". Further, as a result of increased access to care, the number of people living with diagnosed HIV who are virally suppressed has continued to climb.

The MTV Staying Alive Foundation promotes sexual and reproductive health and rights globally, by funding innovative youth-led programs and producing ground-breaking content " including the multi-award winning MTV Shugathat encourages young people to get tested, practice safe sex, and live without stigma and fear.

Cuomo today announced New York State is on track to end the AIDS epidemic by the end of 2020 and proposed new regulations that will remove barriers and expand access to care for uninsured or underinsured people living with HIV. "However the rate of new infections among young people remains alarmingly high", she said.

According to the Ministry of Health, Uganda, between 1.5 million and 2 million people have died of HIV/Aids-related ailments since 1982.

On discovering he had HIV, he said: "Of course it was a shock, however much you prepare yourself, you get that call and you are told "Please come in, we can't tell you something over the phone", so you know something is wrong". People living with HIV now can take one or two pills, and with strict adherence, are able to maintain an undetectable viral load.

Adebayo while lamenting low rate of HIV testing, disclosed that only 22 million out of over 37 million people now affected are undergoing treatment.

HIV testing provides people with a unique opportunity to discover their HIV status and enables those diagnosed with HIV to rapidly initiate lifesaving treatment.

"We will celebrate the progress we've made in their memory, and we will stand shoulder to shoulder and continue to work together with one another to hit zero HIV transmissions and zero HIV stigma for good".

Dr. Christoph Hamelmann, the WHO Representative in the Islamic Republic of Iran, during a surprise visit to a Drop-in Center in Kerman on November 28 took a HIV test to highlight this year's theme of World AIDS Day 2018 as "Know Your Status". In Namibia, the country has achieved success in fighting HIV and AIDS and attaining the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets.
