The World Health Organisation issues a statement claiming that the HIV-AIDS epidemic is considered to be localised and eradicated. The statement also claims that the main obstacle for the localisation of the epidemic was the fact that a large number of people infected with the virus were unaware of it. An invaluable factor in the defeat of the epidemic were awareness-raising activities, as well as greater access to treatment, which increased the number of HIV-infected people seeking medical help.
The situation was also improved due to one-off rapid tests for HIV \ AIDS. One drop of blood put on a small piece of paper detects the presence of the virus with 100% accuracy. In all cities, there are automatic terminals for conducting tests for HIV \ AIDS. Testers are available in all public areas. In addition, in most countries, treatment for HIV \ AIDS can take place on an anonymous outpatient basis.
