Confronting the HIV/AIDS deadly pandemic

Nearly 700,000 people died from AIDS, while 1.7 million people became newly infected with the HIV virus in 2019.

Thirty-eight million people were living with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) at the end of 2019, the majority of them in sub-Saharan Africa. While there is no cure for HIV, a combination of drugs, known as antiretrovirals (ARVs), enable people to live longer, healthier lives if taken regularly. The cost of first-line drugs is now cheaper than ever, but efforts are still needed to ensure everyone who is living with HIV receives treatment. More than 12.6 million people were missing out on receiving treatment at the end of 2019.
