Rwanda has launched a six-month awareness and prevention campaign aimed at stemming new HIV infections in the country at a ceremony to mark the World AIDS Day.

From the first recognized cases so many years ago, we could scarcely see the precipice we were standing on.

HIV infection is often diagnosed through rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs), which detect the presence or absence of HIV antibodies. The majority of the infected were found to belong to the age group of 20-49.

Darryl O'Donnell, CEO of the Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations said: "Advances in medicine, technology and health promotion have powered strong progress against HIV".

Dr. Jared Baeten, an HIV specialist at the University of Washington, spoke to us via Skype and says even with these tools we're not there yet. "The government must now act to prevent this from happening again". Speaking to the Sunday Observer, Rohan Krishantha* in his mid 30s said he did not use a condom, though he knew how to use it, because he trusted his partners. As we continue our fight for access, we must ensure that correct information about prevention, testing and treatment is made widely available among at-risk communities as well as among the general population.

Sexual health charity the Terrance Higgins Trust (THT) called for an end to the stigma faced by people living with the virus. "People are living now", Graven also said.

"The drugs slow down the damage that the virus does to the immune system and allow people to live long, productive lives like everyone else without succumbing to the disease".

People are encouraged to get their STI tests done at these clinics, conducted free and with utmost confidentiality.
