January 1, This Devastating Disease Could Be Eliminated By 2030

1943: Operation Gomorrah — RAF bombing over Hamburg causes a firestorm that kills 42,600 German civilians.

The United Nations (UN) believes that AIDS can be eradicated by the year 2030, given that countries around the globe demonstrate the political will to invest in prevention, treatment, and legal reform.

This bold assertion came from UNAIDS, the UN’s AIDS program, as part of a report published on July 13.

Currently, it is estimated that around 39 million individuals worldwide are living with HIV, which, if untreated, can progress to AIDS.

UNAIDS argues that the solution lies in a concerted international effort, similar to those shown by nations that have made strong commitments to their people, investing in evidence-based HIV prevention and treatment programs.

UNAIDS stated in their report, “We have a solution if we follow the leadership of countries that have forged strong political commitment to put people first and invest in evidence-based HIV prevention and treatment programmes.”

The organization also highlighted the necessity for non-discriminatory laws and the empowerment of community networks.

However, the battle against HIV/AIDS is not just a health issue but also a social one.

People living with HIV or AIDS in many countries continue to face stigma, discrimination, and even violence, hindering their access to treatment and other support.

In their report, UNAIDS highlighted the correlation between financial investments in HIV/AIDS programs and the reduction of new infections.

The most notable results were seen in eastern and southern Africa, where new HIV infections have been reduced by 57% since 2010.

This is credited to robust financial investment in HIV/AIDS programs.

On the other hand, there has been an alarming increase in new infections in eastern Europe and central Asia, as well as in the Middle East and North Africa.

The UN attributes this rise to “a lack of HIV prevention services for marginalized and key populations and the barriers posed by punitive laws and social discrimination.”

In 2022, there were approximately 1.3 million new cases of HIV infections, and 630,000 individuals succumbed to AIDS-related illnesses, according to UNAIDS.

Bottom Line

With proper investments in prevention and treatment, along with a more accepting and inclusive legal environment, the UN believes that it’s possible to put an end to AIDS in less than a decade.

    the world is not eliminating diseases. in fact, diseases we have not seen for some time (malaria, tyhphus, typhoid, etc.) are re-appearing in the US. public health is unraveling, not getting better.
