“I think that 2030 is a viable target to say that we have reached the end of the epidemic,” said Luis Loures, a deputy executive director of UNAIDS, the UN agency leading the fight against HIV/AIDS. “HIV will continue existing as a case here or there but not at the epidemic level we have today.”

There are approximately 34 million people living with the HIV virus and 3 million new infections reported each year.
