Confronting the deadly pandemic

An estimated 800,000 people die each year from AIDS, while nearly 2 million people become newly infected with the HIV virus.

Nearly 38 million people were living with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) at the end of 2018, 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. Nearly 13 million people were missing out on receiving treatment as of June 2019.
