  • Standing ovation Mr Russell Moyle said he could not keep quiet in the light of health cuts

This year's World AIDS day is on the theme: "Know Your Status". He said that society has to accept HIV/AIDS as any other diseases and not to be judgmental and discriminate on HIV positive person. One possible solution discussed was to combine methadone treatment with a prescription for PreP - a daily pill for HIV-negative people to protect them from infection if they inject drugs or have sex with people who are HIV-positive.

Why should you get tested and know your status?

Humana People to People has built strong relationships with national government health departments and global health organizations.

Another survey - of 1,350 people with HIV, conducted by the charity Terrence Higgins Trust (THT) and released to mark the 30th World Aids Day - found 50 per cent of people said they had experienced discrimination due to their HIV status.

A British member of parliament has given a deeply personal and arresting speech, disclosing his HIV positive status and calling on more funding for HIV prevention medication.

More than 77 million people around the world have become infected with HIV since the epidemic emerged in the 1980s, according to UNAIDS. If the drugs are stopped, or not taken at the right time each day, the HIV virus takes advantage of this and starts to make copies of itself again.

Speaking during the launch of the campaign, Rwanda state minister of public and primary healthcare Patrick Ndimubanzi said the focus would be on self-testing, with the government providing self-testing kits.

- One in four people, about 9 million, are unaware that they are HIV-positive. Further, when HIV viral load suppression is reached it helps to helps to reduce the chances of HIV transmission.

In February 2017, the CDC rolled out High-impact Prevention (HIP), its HIV prevention planwhich includes HIV testing, treatment-as-prevention, needle exchange and PrEPbut NO mention of condoms. Lungalang emphasised on the need to know the roots causing the deadly disease and also reminded the students about the state of Nagaland being the most infected in India. People Living with HIV are based on a survey of 181 Australians living with HIV.

The battle has been fought for years to tackle the epidemic that is HIV and, in just over 30 years, outcomes have changed from the virus being a death sentence to being able to live a healthy life. As we continue our fight for access, we must ensure that correct information about prevention, testing and treatment is made widely available among at-risk communities as well as among the general population.

People can be at risk of HIV if they have unprotected sexual relations, receive unsafe blood transfusion, and are exposed to contaminated injecting equipment. They were seeing people die. Kheka Lima, Vice-Principal gave a talk on the theme "Know your status" where she highlighted on the recent status of HIV prevalence in Nagaland and encouraged the students to be aware of their status.

Meanwhile, in Ratnapura where the first Sri Lankan HIV patient was detected in 1987, there had been no HIV cases reported this year.

This week, ahead of World Aids Day, Public Health England has published a report showing how, across England, different areas have achieved their "90-90-90" targets.

Despite enormous progress over the past 30 years, there are still large obstacles to eliminating AIDS. World Health Organization first recommended HIV self-testing in December 2016.
