By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: World Aids Day is recognized on December 1.

The day is set aside to bring together people from around the world to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and demonstrate international solidarity.

The day will be observed under the theme, “Let communities lead”.

World Aids Day is an opportunity to reflect on the progress made to date, to raise awareness about the challenges that remain to achieve the goals of ending AIDS by 2030 and to mobilize all stakeholders to jointly redouble efforts to ensure the success of the HIV response.

Data from the Ministry of Health and Wellness shows that in Belize, an estimated 3,682 people were living with HIV at the end of 2022.

Last year, 43 cases of HIV were reported among pregnant women and 17 of those were newly detected cases.

In addition, 35 babies were born to HIV positive women and 1 baby was infected with HIV.
