VGP – HIV/AIDS prevention and control works in the northern city of Hai Phong witnessed reduction in three criteria of the numbers of new HIV carriers, HIV carriers developing full-blown AIDS and deaths of AIDS over the recent nine months of 2019. 

The city uncovered 131 new HIV carriers, 16 AIDS patients and 12 deaths of AIDS in nine months, deceases of 23 new HIV carriers and five deaths of AIDS. 

As of August 31, 2019, as many as 7,874 alive HIV carriers were recorded in the city and 6,305 ones developing full-blown AIDS. A total number of 4,568 deaths of HIV/AIDS were reported. 

Since early 2019, the city’s Department of Health has issued a number of documents on HIV/AIDS prevention and control, enhancement of Methadone treatment, ARV treatment and PrEP treatment in the city. 

The city is striving to achieve the 90-90-90 Plan (90% of all people living with HIV will know their HIV status. 90% of all people with diagnosed HIV infection will receive sustained antiretroviral therapy. 90% of all people receiving antiretroviral therapy will have viral suppression).
