SCIENZECNRSALUTE Misurata la velocità della morte da Luigi Cignoni - 14 agosto 2018 0 230 epa06360680 A Thai medical staff member prepares needle to take blood sample for a human immunodeficiency virus infection (or HIV) and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (or AIDS) test at the Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Center's Anonymous Clinic in Bangkok, Thailand, 20 November 2017 (issued 01 December 2017). The Thai Red Cross founded Anonymous Clinic is the first of its kind to be exempt from revealing the name and real identities of HIV patients; the clinic provides confidential HIV testing and treatment services for locals and foreigners. After Thailand's first case of HIV/AIDS was reported in 1984, more than a million of Thais have been infected with HIV and hundreds of thousands have died of the AIDS virus. The Thai Public Health Ministry launched its new 13 years strategy for ending the AIDS epidemic as a public health threat in Thailand from 2017 through 2030. According to a Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) report, new HIV infections in Thailand have declined by 50 percent from 2010 to 2016 as a result of the success of HIV prevention programs.
