In observing World AIDS Day, the Kent County Health Department will be offering free walk-in HIV testing during the week, starting December 2.

Since it was first observed more than 30 years ago, progress to prevent and treat HIV has been "extraordinary", according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

It said pregnant woman and her unborn child should receive the HIV treatment right at the delivery room. The MACS also informed that the cumulative number of people living with HIV who started on ART are 3804.

World AIDS Day launched in 1988, and much has changed after three decades. With treatment, a person can be HIV-positive but keep the virus at bay using anti-retroviral therapy, and never develop full-blown AIDS.

Of the almost 38 million people living with HIV worldwide - including 1.7 million children younger than 15 years old - just 24.5 million have access to treatment therapies, according to UNAIDS.

She advised health workers who charged fees for HIV treatments in Ghana and across the world for services and medications that are supposed to be free to desist from such acts.

The Spice Girl-turned-designer - who is good friends with the singer and his husband David Furnish - posted a long message on Instagram highlighting the way the Elton John Aids Foundation "doesn't discriminate and will help anyone, anywhere at risk or living with HIV".

Latest Statistics from the NAS and United Nations agencies show that the new infection rate of HIV continues to decline in the country.

In addition to providing information, it is meant to sensitize health personnel so that more and more young gay men, men who have sex with other men (MSM), who are more disproportionately affected by HIV, seek and obtain the necessary information and support for a healthy sexual life.
