Için Today, it is very important to get rid of this 30-year past, where many struggles are needed to achieve our global response to HIV / AIDS, u said Adele Benzaken, director of the STI, AIDS and Viral Hepatitis Department. He recalls that this story was marked by the struggle and longing for the victims of the disease. "Some people have worked hard, but today they have left very quickly without knowing the treatment and prevention options we have, we must honor them, but we must make the example of the world against the world against those who have resisted the virus and have become activists or heroes in this story. "
In 1987, 200,000 people attended the event, during the third International AIDS Conference in Washington. They were people living with viruses who wanted to be heard by activists, the scientific community and the world. Because for these activists, when there was no treatment, silence was a form of death. For this reason, the initiative of the American non-governmental organization ACT UP, a large bedspread mosaic (duvetsIn front of the Capitol to respect and respect AIDS victims. It was a way to protest and confirm the struggle for life.
The following year, James Bunn and Thomas Netter were proposed to establish World Aid Day on the initiative of the World Health Organization's two public information officers. The idea was then taken to Jonathan Mann, the director of the Global AIDS Program (UNAIDS), as a way to continue the prejudices and misinformation on the issue. The initiative took its revenge and stamped the world until the beginning of December to date the prejudiced struggle and the stigma related to the disease.

Time has passed and today it is possible to live with HIV, but AIDS is still a fact. At present, 75% of people live with the virus and are aware of their serostatus. The purpose of the UN is to enable 90% of this number to reach 90% of this number and to receive at least 90% of these people, and 90% of those receiving treatment are unstable. protect the virus and maintain the quality of life without showing the symptoms of AIDS.
In Brazil, 92% of those who received treatment has become unable to be detected in this state. This success is due to the strengthening of the actions of the Ministry of Health through DIAHV in order to expand the best available treatment for HIV. An example of this is the country's addition of dolutegravir as the first step to treat patients.
In addition, SUS uses the most advanced strategies and technologies to prevent virus infection, such as Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) and Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP); In addition to expanding access to specific actions for early detection and specific HIV action populations, such as transgender people, men who have sex with gays and men, sex workers, deprived populations, and users of alcohol and other substances.
