The HIV outbreak in Europe is still developing at a frightening pace chiefly in Eastern Europe.

While the number of new cases was lower than in recent years in the 53 countries comprising the European region, in many instances the diagnosis came too late and the victim had already reached an advanced stage of infection, according to the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control and the World Health Organization's European office.

"It's hard to talk about good news in the face of another year of unacceptably high numbers of people infected with HIV", said Zsuzsanna Jakab, director of the World Health Organization regional office.

Nearly 160,000 people were newly diagnosed with HIV in Europe a year ago, with three-quarters of the new cases arising in Ukraine and Russian Federation, two European health agencies said on November 28.

Later, he sent troops to the Mideast to repel Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in his attempted takeover of oil-rich Kuwait. He was the 41st USA president between 1989 and 1993, after serving two terms as vice-president to Ronald Reagan.

"We are quite far behind achieving those targets, particularly in Eastern Europe and Central Asia", said Dr. Masoud Dara, coordinator of communicable diseases and HIV team leader at WHO Europe.

Meanwhile, the report also found that new HIV diagnoses continued to decline, falling 17% from 5,280 in 2016 to 4,363 in 2017.

Of new HIV diagnoses in the eastern part of the Region, 59% are reported to be from heterosexual transmission.

Among the types of data the CDC collects: the number and population rates of HIV diagnoses, the number of people living with HIV and the number of people receiving HIV medical care. Data need to be carefully considered as they depend on the transmission mode reported by the individuals. This is mainly in areas where high risk group people live and also in areas where some people involve in high risk behaviour by visiting commercial sex workers.

The supply and demand fundamentals remain bearish, but the early price action suggests the technical picture may be improving. The price of a barrel of Brent crude for January delivery also ended the day higher, rising 75 cents to settle at $59.51.

Activists blame widespread discrimination against LGBT+ people for an eight-fold rise in transmission among men having sex with men, to more than 1,000 cases annually.

The Chamber of the capital will launch on Wednesday the campaign "stop HIV is in our hands", with the aim of "increasing the knowledge of the population" regarding the prevention and transmission of the AIDS virus.

Despite this measurable progress in reducing the number of new HIV diagnoses, overall rates continue to increase in about one third of EU/EEA countries.

The momentum to revamp political commitment to end AIDS by 2030 has never been so strong in the European Region. The figures make the United Kingdom one of the first countries to reach the UN's 90-90-90 targets, which urge countries to achieve a 90% success rate in the diagnosis, treatment and viral suppression of HIV, the health body says.
