"Many of the HIV diagnoses are being made late, years after the infection was acquired, despite the fact that early diagnosis and treatment significantly improves the prognosis", he said.

"Lisbon is the Portuguese city with the highest number of new cases, and in order to reverse this trend, we must focus on increasing the information available on prevention of infection, screening and reducing stigma associated with HIV".

"The increased rate of new diagnoses in the region since 2012 comes amid a global decline and Masoud Dara, HIV specialist at the World Health Organization, said it could be "an early indication of overspill in the general population".

"Despite our efforts, HIV still damages the lives of so many people, and causes not only much suffering and illness, but also discrimination and stigmatization", said Vytenis Andriukaitis, European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety.

HIV remains a major public health concern, affecting more than 2 million people in Europe, especially in the eastern regions like Russian Federation, according to a new study.

One reason for the persistent HIV epidemic in Europe is that late diagnosis remains a challenge across the whole Region.


Is detected the disease early and consistently treated, can be lowered the amount of virus in the body so far that it is in the case of Tests undetectable, and the Affected are not contagious.

European Union and European Economic Area countries saw a reduction in 2017 rates, mainly driven by a 20 percent drop since 2015 among men who have sex with men.

A total of 1,073 people in the region are now living with the condition. Every second, the disease was in an advanced stage, when she was diagnosed. This target calls for 90% of people living with HIV to be diagnosed, that 90% of people diagnosed are receiving antiretroviral therapy and 90% of people on treatment are virally suppressed and unable to pass on the infection.

Also in Germany, an estimated 13,000 people with HIV who are unaware of their infection.

The figures came as the World Health Organisation (WHO) warned Europe as a whole was not on track to meet the target by the 2020 deadline, with "unacceptably high" numbers of new infections. Participants expressed governments' firm commitment to scale up efforts to implement the Action Plan for the Health Sector Response to HIV in the WHO European Region and achieve the 90-90-90 targets.

Another recent milestone towards ending AIDS is the United Nations Common Position on Ending HIV, TB and Viral Hepatitis through Intersectoral Collaboration launched at the 73rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly on 27 September 2018.
