Tanzania in progress dealing with HIV

(MENAFN) A report by the National Bureau of Statistics said Tanzania has made progress towards achieving 90-90-90 targets of the United Nations program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) in adults aged 15 years and older.

The 90-90-90 target is an ambitious global HIV program by UNAIDS and adopted by high frequency member countries.

It advises that by 2020, 90 percent of people living with HIV know their status, 90 percent of all people diagnosed HIV infection receive antiretroviral (ARV) medication and 90 percent on ARV have viral load suppression.

According to the Tanzania HIV Impact Survey 2016-2017 report, only 60.9 percent of those living with HIV/Aids know their status, significantly below the UNAIDS' 90 percent target.
