"Many of the HIV diagnoses are being made late, years after the infection was acquired, despite the fact that early diagnosis and treatment significantly improves the prognosis", he said.

In comparison, Eastern Europe had 51.1 new diagnosed cases per 100,000 people, Western Europe had a rate of 6.4 new cases per 100,000.

The HIV outbreak in Europe is still developing at a frightening pace chiefly in Eastern Europe.

"We live in a context necessarily different from the imaginary of many people, since the treatments are very effective today".

According to the document, as far as Eastern Europe is concerned, "when combining data from the Russian Federation within data reported by the other 12 countries on people for whom the mode of HIV transmission was known, heterosexual transmission accounted for 59% of new diagnoses, transmission through injecting drug use for 37%, sex between men for 3% and mother-to-child transmission for 0.5%".

The minister said that the government is committed to make honest efforts for increasing the access to and uptake of HIV preventive and treatment services by engaging with all stakeholders to promote HIV awareness and minimize stigma and discrimination against HIV.

"The increased rate of new diagnoses in the region since 2012 comes amid a global decline and Masoud Dara, HIV specialist at the World Health Organization, said it could be "an early indication of overspill in the general population".

Against the UN's 90-90-90 targets (that 90% of those living with HIV are diagnosed; 90% of people diagnosed were receiving treatment; and 90% of those being treated were virally suppressed), in 2017, 92% of people living with HIV in the United Kingdom had been diagnosed, 98% of those diagnosed were receiving treatment and 97% of people receiving treatment were virally suppressed.

Almost 160,000 people were newly infected in Europe previous year, and more than 130,000 of those diagnoses were among people in the East - the most ever recorded there, CNN reported. World Health Organization says that within the European Union, new diagnoses actually fell.
