There is no risk of passing on HIV if your doctor has confirmed that you are undetectable (or virally suppressed), you continue taking your treatment and attend regular viral load monitoring appointments. Undetectable = Untransmittable.
Domestic funding for the HIV response now exceeded funds provided by international donors, accounting for 57% of the global funding total in 2015. In the face of donor stagnation there is increasing emphasis on countries most affected by HIV to finance their own responses and find more efficient and cost-effective ways to do so.
In 2018, there were 179 countries worldwide that reported people who inject drugs, but just 86 of these countries implement needle and syringe programmes. This is a slight reduction from 2016 levels, when 90 countries provided NSPs.
Despite overwhelming evidence of the effectiveness of harm reduction for preventing the spread of HIV and reducing other harms associated with drug use, global harm reduction service coverage remains insufficient.
