World AIDS Day Some 129,000 people living with HIV in Argentina

December 1, 2018

Report by the Ministry of Health notes that 20% do not know that they have contracted the virus. In addition, it is detailed that 83.5% of those who know their diagnosis are treated. Most of them are served in the public system.


The Direction of AIDS, STD, Hepatitis and TBC (DSETSHyT) has published a report this year in which it updates data on HIV control, control and elimination.

According to this new work, in Argentina about 129,000 people have the virus, although 20% of them do not know. In addition, 83.5% of those who know their diagnosis are treated and of that number, most are treated in the public system.

Unfortunately, 35% of new diagnoses occur late (in 30% of women and 37% of men). On the other hand, DSETSHyT He points out that for every two men with HIV he is a woman with the virus. For almost 15 years, the point of view for AIDS remained almost unchanged, standing at 3.4 per 100 thousand (2016).


The Undersecretary for Prevention and Control of Inocable and Immovable Diseases, Miriam Burgos, he explained:

"The current challenge is to expand the offer of prevention and to implement and consolidate a model of comprehensive care through the decentralization of health, built in the territories and the community. These actions must be guided by the principles promoted by the DSETSHyT, as universality, accessibility, quality information and social participation "


The report also explains that 98% of people infected do this with sex without a condom. Among men, half infects during a sexual relationship with women and the other half during a sexual relationship with other males.

At the national level, the work warns of the perspective on sexually transmitted infections (STIs). There was an important increase in this type of infection. Such is the case of syphilis, whose cases tripled between 2013 and 2017 ranging from 11.7 to 35.2 per 100 thousand and the proportion of positiveness in routine tests made on pregnant women went from 2% to 3.2% in the same period.

Foundation Generally, an organization that works on public protections, has echoed these information and has worked to demand better measures in the countries to promote and eliminate AIDS.

Therefore, in the middle of the G2 summit, which takes place in the City of Buenos Aires, the Foundation, along with the United Nations United Nations Program for AIDS (UNAIDS), launched a joint complaint for AIDS to be placed in the international agenda.

According to a guest, approximately 940,000 people died worldwide from AIDOS related diseases in the last year. In addition, in 2017, 75% of people with HIV knew their diagnosis and 79% of them had access to treatment. 81% of that number had their male load uninhabitable.

Scientific progress: They succeed in repressing the HIV virus in 6 patients

Peter Cahn, scientific director of the Foundation, said:

"90% of people with HIV knew their diagnosis, accessed treatment and preserved their non-executable male load, could control the HIV / AIDS epidemic in 10 years. This is the responsibility of world leaders and it is not an impossible goal because most many countries have tools such as testing, treatment and improvement in the quality of life of people with HIV. So we ask that we avoid avoidance and put HIV on the agenda "


On the other hand, Huéspe's president, Kurt Frieder explained this "In the last nine years, the G20 did not include HIV in any of its official documents. It was mentioned only in the document signed by the Ministers of Health in Mar del Plata, in 2018, and completely stated.".
