Ghana Records 20,000 New HIV/AIDS Cases Each Year – Ghana Health Service

Published

on

The Director-General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr Patrick Kuma-Aboagye has said that even though HIV prevalence has significantly declined, approximately 20,000 new cases are recorded each year in Ghana.

 

He said that with a current national adult prevalence of 1.7%, Ghana has seen a decline in HIV prevalence from 3.6% to 2.0% in 2019, showing that the disease is still formidable in the country even though there had been some progress.

Dr Kuma-Aboagye announced this at the launch of the of World AIDS Day in Accra. The event, which is held annually, is themed: “Global solidarity, shared responsibility”, with an adopted sub-theme: “Stay safe, Let’s endAIDS by 2030”.

“An estimated 342,307 of the approximately 38 million people estimated to be living with HIV worldwide are in Ghana, and 153,901 of the 25.4 million had access to treatment as of the end of 2019,” Dr Kuma-Aboagye said.

He, therefore, advised that staying safe from HIV infections meant adopting a comprehensive combination of prevention and promotion strategies, which included the use of condoms and accessing testing and treatment services.

No cure exists for AIDS, but strict adherence to antiretroviral regimens (ARVs) can dramatically slow the disease’s progress as well as prevent secondary infections and complications.
