MSF responds to UNAIDS update: The fight against HIV is far from over

International humanitarian medical organisation Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is concerned that the annual number of deaths due to AIDS has declined only minimally since 2014. According to disturbing figures in the UNAIDS Global Aids Update 2019 released today in Eshowe, South Africa, 770,000 people died of AIDS-related illnesses worldwide in 2018. This is despite the reality that the timely use of effective diagnostic tools and medicines to treat HIV/AIDS could prevent most deaths.
