Overview

811彩票开户In Chad in 2018:

  • 120 000 people were living with HIV.
  • HIV incidence per 1000 uninfected—the number of new HIV infections among the uninfected population over one year—among all people of all ages was 0.44.
  • HIV prevalence—the percentage of people living with HIV—among adults (15–49 years) was 1.3%.
  • 6500 people were newly infected with HIV.
  • 3100 people died from an AIDS-related illness.

There has been progress in the number of AIDS-related deaths since 2010, with a 12% decrease, from 3500 deaths to 3100 deaths. The number of new HIV infections also decreased, from 7400 to 6500 in the same period.

The 90–90–90 targets envision that, by 2020, 90% of people living with HIV will know their HIV status, 90% of people who know their HIV-positive status will be accessing treatment and 90% of people on treatment will have suppressed viral loads. In terms of all people living with HIV, reaching the 90–90–90 targets means that 81% of all people living with HIV are on treatment and 73% of all people living with HIV are virally suppressed. In 2018 in Chad:

  • 51% of people living with HIV were on treatment.

811彩票开户Of all adults aged 15 years and over living with HIV, 56% were on treatment, while only 16% of children aged 0–14 years living with HIV were on treatment.

811彩票开户Fifty-six per cent of pregnant women living with HIV accessed antiretroviral medicine to prevent transmission of the virus to their baby, preventing 1100 new HIV infections among newborns.

811彩票开户Women are disproportionally affected by HIV in Chad: of the 100 000 adults living with HIV, 60 000 (60%) were women. New HIV infections among young women aged 15–24 years were around half as many more as those among young men: 1500 new infections among young women, compared to less than 1000 among young men. HIV treatment was higher among women than men, however, with 67% of adult women living with HIV on treatment, compared to 42% of adult men.

811彩票开户There is no information on whether same-sex sexual relations are legal or not in Chad.

811彩票开户Only 13.07% of women and men 15–24 years old correctly identified ways of preventing the sexual transmission of HIV.

811彩票开户The percentage of people living with HIV and tuberculosis who were being treated for both diseases was 30.5% in 2015.
