UNAIDS says COVID-19 has worsened HIV situation in the Caribbean

first_img“Barbados has reached the target for testing, while Guyana has exceeded it with 94 per cent of people living with HIV diagnosed. Cuba is just shy of reaching the treatment target while Haiti has gotten an amazing 98 per cent of diagnosed people on treatments.” The report, titled “Seizing the moment,”, warns that even the gains made could be lost and progress further stalled if countries fail to act and highlights just how urgent it is for countries to double down and act with greater urgency to reach the millions still left behind. It said that because the achievements have not been shared equally within and between countries, the global HIV targets set for 2020 will not be reached. “We were not on track to meet the 2020 targets now COVID-19 increases the crisis that may blow us of the course. The report urges us to leverage HIVE leadership and lessons against this new pandemic threat,” he said. The UNAIDS official said Barbados has almost reached the test targets, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago have achieved significant numbers among people living with HIV requiring treatment. With regards to the Caribbean, the UNAIDS official said many countries in the region had achieved the WHO/PAHO revalidation process in relation to mother to child transmission of the virus. ‘We must remember why they were made in the first place. As things stand, HIV resources for the region are just 42 per cent of the 2020 targets,” he added. He said the 2020 Global Aids Update notes that even before COVID-219, “Caribbean states health systems were struggling to cover programmes traditionally funded by international donors including HIV Prevention in Key Population initiatives”. But he noted that 81 per cent of diagnosed Caribbean people were on treatment last year “around the same level as the global average”. “But even where the situation is improving ignorance and prejudice remain high. We have to engage people consistently around ending the discrimination,” Guwani said, adding” we must also improve accountability and redress mechanism where people’s rights are violated”. He said most reporting Caribbean countries dispense treatment on a monthly basis and “adopting the multi-monthly dispensing would reduce the time spent in clinics both during and after COVID”. UNAIDS Caribbean director, Dr. James Guwani, speaking at a virtual news conference, has warned that the pandemic may blow the Caribbean ‘of course”. “One hopeful finding from the report is that the Caribbean countries have what it takes to scale up HIV services and reach ambitious goals. Some countries have achieved elements of the 1990 targets, while a couple others are just shy of the target. The new report by UNAIDS shows remarkable, but highly unequal, progress, notably in expanding access to antiretroviral therapy. He said between 2010and 2019 there was a 30 per cent decline in disbursement by global funds and a 90 per cent decline investment by the United States government. “The crisis is an opportunity to adopt multi-monthly dispensing of HIV infections for stable patients in accordance with PAHO (Pan American Health Organisation) WHO (World Health Organisation) guidelines”. “Even as we recognise these successes we must remind ourselves that unless the testing targets have been achieved all other outcomes are sub optimal, but this shows within our region we have the capacity to deploy the people policy and programmes to end AIDS.”The UNAIDS official said last year there were 6,900 AIDS related deaths in the region, declining by 37 per cent since 2010. He said the most recent data showed that while discriminatory attitudes towards people labelled HIV had been declining consistently in some countries like Belize and Guyana “they are rebounding in places like Haiti. He said HIV resources availability from domestic sources increased by 38 per cent, which is good from 2010-19, adding “it is critical that Caribbean governments guard these investments even during COVID-19. He said 86 per cent of pregnant women with HIV received antiretroviral therapy to prevent transmission to their babies in 2019. But he said progress across the testing has slowed down, noting “this means we have to expand proven methods of active case …including through community-based programmes”. He said to reach the 1990 targets the Caribbean would need to get 42,000 more people diagnosed, 61, 000 on treatment and 75,000 barrels of pca, warning thiss may not happen. Photo via UNAIDS GENEVA, July 7 – The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has worsened the efforts by Caribbean countries to meet the 2020 targets on HIV-AIDS, a senior UNAIDS official said Tuesday. The UNAIDs official said that HIV prevalence stands at 1.1 per cent in the region and that in 2019 “about three of every four people living with HIV in the Caribbean were aware of their status”. He said that represented 77 per cent compared to the worldwide average of 81 per cent. CMClast_img read more

NBA title within grasp as Raptors beat Warriors, 3-1

first_img“Just (got to) be patient, come in focused and ready to play defense and make some shots,” Leonard said. “As long as we win, I’m satisfied.”Serge Ibaka added 20 points off the bench for his best performance in the series, and Pascal Siakam chipped in 19 points for the Raptors, who won despite the spirited return of Klay Thompson, who was on fire from the field, and Kevon Looney.Game 5 moves back to Toronto on Monday (Tuesday, Manila time).It looked like Golden State was ready to give Toronto a brutal reality check when the Warriors went up by 11 in the first quarter.But the Raptors, who have shed their reputation as a team that couldn’t get the job done under the bright lights, performed exceptionally well under pressure.They hung around in the second quarter, then took it to another gear in the third where they outscored the Warriors 37-21.Thompson scored 28 points to lead Golden State while Steph Curry finished with 27, but was just 2 of 9 from downtown, 48 hours after producing 47 points in Game 3.Draymond Green tallied 10 points, 9 rebounds and 12 assists.Leonard also grabbed 12 rebounds in the game.Only once in 34 chances in NBA Finals history has a team rallied from 3-1 down to win the title, that being in 2016 when LeBron James led Cleveland back to defeat the Warriors.The Warriors remained without playoff scoring leader Kevin Durant, out the past month with a right calf injury, and lacking him they were no match for the fast-moving Raptors.Leonard opened the second half with back-to-back 3-pointers, giving the Raptors their first lead at 48-46.Toronto closed the third with a 20-6 run to seize a 79-67 lead entering the fourth, Leonard scoring 11 and Ibaka adding 7 in the pivotal span.Fred VanVleet opened final quarter with a 3-pointer for Toronto but was taken to the locker room moments later for 7 stitches after a bloody gash was opened under his right eye when he was struck by the left elbow of Golden State’s Shaun Livingston under the basket.The Warriors got within 97-89 on a Curry 3-pointer with 2:56 remaining but came no closer.It could have been the final game at 53-year-old Oracle Arena for the Warriors, who move into a new arena next season in San Francisco. The arena has been the club’s home since 1971.Defensive work dominated early, both teams struggling to make shots and combining for 13 first-half turnovers.Leonard scored 14 points in the first quarter but the rest of the Raptors shot 1-for-13 and the Warriors, led by six points from Looney, jumped ahead 23-12 before Leonard scored Raptors five points in a 7-0 Toronto run.Thompson caught fire in the second quarter, going 4-of-5 from the floor as Golden State led 46-42 at halftime. (Agence France-Presse) Kawhi Leonard scored 36 points to put the Raptors on the brink of an NBA championship. USA TODAY SPORTS/REUTERS SEEING the Golden State Warriors go 0-2 at home in the playoffs sounded like a mind-boggling statement just a week ago.Just as unthinkable? The Toronto Raptors going up 3-1 against the Steph Curry and the battle-tested champions.Well, you better believe what you’re seeing, Canada; you’re a win away from making history.Kawhi Leonard scored 36 points, 17 in the pivotal third quarter, as the Toronto Raptors downed the Golden State Warriors 105-92 on Friday (Saturday, Manila time) to be on the brink of an NBA championship.last_img read more
