WHO Releases 10-Year Review Report Chapter Focusing On HIV
WHO: HIV: from a devastating epidemic to a manageable chronic disease
This chapter of the WHO’s “Ten years in public health 2007-2017” report focuses on WHO’s role in the global AIDS response. “WHO’s standard-setting work helped make prevention and treatment more accessible, safe, effective, and efficient, and encouraged integrating HIV services into existing health systems. WHO has prequalified more than 250 products for HIV-related conditions. New targets aim to prevent 1.6 million new infections and 600,000 deaths per year, ending AIDS as a public health threat by 2030” (May 2017).
