Top news Launch of the National Summer Anti-AIDS Campaign



Today, a National Anti-AIDS campaign for the summer is being launched, which will last until 15 September 2018.

13 cabinets for free and anonymous HIV counseling and research (CABCS) are active in the country. Pre-test and post-test counseling by prepared medical professionals to raise awareness of HIV / AIDS issues is being conducted in these offices. From the beginning of the year to July, more than 162,000 people were surveyed.

Between 1986 and 03.08.2018, a total of 2 876 people with HIV infection were registered in Bulgaria. 161 HIV-positive HIV patients have been detected since the beginning of this year. The trend of recent years is that the number of newly registered men is many times greater than that of infected women. The proportion of infected men and women this year is 6: 1 (139 men and 22 women).

This year was most affected by the age group 30-39 years – 44%, followed by the age group 20-29 years – 25%.

The incidence of newly registered cases of HIV infection per 100,000 people in the EU and EEA countries in 2016 is 5.7, for Bulgaria the indicator is 2.8, ie. our country has a double prevalence of HIV among EU and EEA countries.

The tendency of recent years has been preserved on the path of infection. In the current year, 90% of newly infected HIV infection is sexually infected. In 9% they are infected with injecting drug use.

As of July 31, 2018, a total of 1,430 HIV patients were followed in the HIV / AIDS treatment sectors and 1,334 (93%) received modern antiretroviral therapy. All necessary tests and consumables are available.

To meet the state's obligations, the Department of Health provides a free advanced antiretroviral treatment for all HIV / AIDS patients, regardless of their status as health insurance. The use of antiretroviral therapy prolongs the life of patients and improves the quality of their lives.

Five sectors for the treatment of HIV / AIDS patients in infectious clinics in the cities of Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna, Pleven and Stara Zagora have been identified and exploited.

These are the planned activities of the 28 regional health inspections related to the summer ANTISPIN campaign in the period 15.08.2018 – 15.09.2018
