Australia may soon have defeated HIV

Experts celebrated the drop in infections at the opening of the 12th International AIDS Society conference in Brisbane as a “milestone”. “The fact that we are now talking about eliminating HIV transmission is incredible,” said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. It will show what is possible and give hope. According to the University of New South Wales, only 555 new HIV infections were recorded in Australia in 2022.

Above all, preventive measures such as increased HIV testing and pre-exposure prophylaxis contributed to success. This is available to some people in Australia – as well as in Austria – on prescription with a small extra payment. People who do not have HIV take medicines to protect themselves from infection with the virus. In addition, thanks to the current medical capabilities, it is increasingly possible to prevent HIV infection from developing into an immunodeficiency disease, AIDS. “The success shows that science has the tools and knowledge to stop infections and save lives,” Tedros said.
