According to UNAIDS Executive Director Winnie Bianima, her agency is asking governments in all countries to focus on inequalities that prevent people from accessing the services they need.
"If they can close these gaps for specific high-risk groups, we will be able to put an end to AIDS by 2030," she said.
Bianima called on countries to pursue the same political will in the fight against AIDS as against the coronavirus and called the fight against AIDS "an unfinished business."
It is estimated that at least 40 countries are currently aiming for a 90 percent reduction in AIDS-related deaths by 2030, including nine countries in eastern and southern Africa.
It should be noted that according to the Center for Public Health of the Ministry of Healthcare of Ukraine, in March 2021, 1,286 new cases of HIV infection were officially registered in Ukraine, 419 patients were diagnosed with AIDS, and 161 people died of AIDS.
