star this property answer text <p>We are closely tracking reports of an outbreak of just over 600 new cases of HIV, 75% of them among children, in a town called Ratto Dero in Sindh province. The UK government invests significantly in the Global Fund to fight AIDS, TB and Malaria, which works closely with the provincial government in Sindh.</p><p> </p><p>There has been an intensive effort to test the population for HIV to establish the extent of the outbreak. Over 20,000 people have been tested to date. We are in close contact with the Global Fund and are working with them to ascertain whether any further assistance is needed, for example to make treatment available for those who need it and prevent onward transmission.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>It is not acceptable that young women, particularly in Africa, have the highest number of new HIV infections and deaths from AIDS. That is why the UK government puts the empowerment of girls and women at the heart of everything we do and is an essential component of our fight against AIDS.</p><p> </p><p>We are currently the second biggest donor to the Global Fund, which has embraced gender equality as central to accomplishing its mission. We also integrate HIV prevention and treatment into sexual, reproductive health and rights and maternal and child health programmes across much of sub-Saharan Africa. By promoting comprehensive sexuality education (through key programmes such as the Girls Education Challenge) and driving efforts to prevent violence against women and girls, we are also helping to reduce the risk of HIV infection among vulnerable women and girls.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is a world leader in efforts to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030, including through our major investment in the Global Fund.</p><p>Our programmes focus on integrating the HIV response, building on improvements in access to treatment, while seeking to reduce new infections, particularly among adolescent girls, women and other groups still left behind who face stigma and discrimination. DFID has no immediate plans to review this approach, which is based on the evidence of what works.</p> more like this
