Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Theodoros Zagorakis
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Prevention, diagnosis and treatment of AIDS

Despite the progress made in recent years in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of AIDS, it is more pressing than ever to take additional measures to combat the virus. In his message for World AIDS Day, António Guterres, Secretary-General of the UN, said that new HIV infections are not falling rapidly enough, while at the same time one in four people living with the virus do not know that they have it. According to the World Health Organisation, approximately 37.9 million individuals were living with HIV in 2018. In 2018, 1.7 million people became newly infected; this figure is nowhere near the targets set for controlling the AIDS pandemic by 2030.

In view of this:

Does the Commission have recent statistics on HIV infections and the diagnosis and treatment of the disease in the Member States?

What does it plan to do to provide citizens with reliable and timely information in order to prevent new infections and keep the disease under control?

What steps has it taken or does it plan to take to increase the resources that are required for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of AIDS?
