iciHaiti - Health : Fight against HIV/AIDS, the Ministry not really satisfied
Haiti's performance in the fight against HIV/AIDS "is not entirely satisfactory," said Lauré Adrién, Director General of the Ministry of Public Health recalling that "Although the prevalence rate has decreased by 2.2% At 2% in the last five years, the main challenge today is the irregular use of antiretroviral drugs by HIV-positive people."

The Ministry regrets that at present, despite the considerable efforts made by the Government and free medicines, which are available throughout the territory, https://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-24942-icihaiti-health-90-000-haitians-receive-treatment-for-hiv.html some HIV-positive people do not regularly follow their treatment or abandon it without looking for a Health Center to respond to their state of health.

By 2030, the Ministry wants to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS https://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-22976-icihaiti-health-150-000-people-live-today-with-aids-in-haiti.html and ensure that carriers are no longer able to transmit HIV "but for this HIV-positive people must take their medication regularly and without interruption," emphasized by emphasizing Lauré Adrién

The last 6th survey on mortality, morbidity and utilization of services (EMMUS-VI) indicated that in Haiti 1% of people aged 15-24 were HIV positive, with a slightly higher percentage among women 1.1% than in men 0.9%. https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-25612-haiti-health-nearly-20-people-die-every-day-of-hiv-aids-in-haiti.html
