UNICEF: 360,000 teenagers may die of AIDS

United Nations – harmony:

United Nations Children's Forces (UNICEF) have called for an urgent and rapid expansion of treatment programs as well as prevention among adolescents of both sexes, while the decline in HIV and AIDS-related deaths has slowed considerably.

"About 76,000 adolescents or adolescents are expected to die each day, around 360,000 to 2030, unless there is additional investment in currently available programs to prevent HIV, medical diagnosis and treatment programs.

"The report reveals that the world is far from the right path to eradicating AIDS among children and adolescents by 2030," said UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fur.

UNICEF estimates that nearly 700 adolescents between the ages of 10 and 19 are newly infected with HIV every day, which corresponds to one injury every two minutes.
