As per the report by the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS, UNAIDS, 'Ending AIDS: Progress towards the 90-90-90 targets', India, China and Pakistan are among the 10 countries that accounted for more than 95 per cent of all new HIV infections in the Asia and the Pacific region in 2016. This report was designed to track the progress so that by 2020, 90% of all HIV-infected people know their status, 90% of all HIV-diagnosed people are accessing antiretroviral therapy (ART) and 90% of those taking ART are virally suppressed.It said scales have tipped for the first time as more than half of all people with HIV virus now have access to treatment, while AIDS-related deaths have nearly halved since 2005.
In the Asia and the Pacific region, the annual number of new HIV infections in Asia and the Pacific has declined 13 per cent over the last six years but the top ten countries with new infections account for more than 95% of all new HIV infections in the region in 2016.
