Sarai-Chisala Tempelhoff of the Women's Lawyers Association of Malawi said that an HIV positive woman in her country had been convicted for breastfeeding her baby.

Out of the 30 hourly infections in 2017, about 20 were girls aged 15 to 19, which represents a "crisis of health as well as a crisis of agency", according to UNICEF. However, the criminalization of same-sex intercourse in many countries often prevents access to HIV services for these groups.

"As long as we do not reach the young people and stop the epidemic at home (...), we will not achieve our goals", said the director of operations of Unitaid (an global organization for medicinal aid) Robert Matiru.

Five men charged in suspected acid attack on boy in United Kingdom
Police launched a nationwide manhunt on Sunday and released these images of men they wanted to speak too. The boy suffered "serious burns to his arm and face" and was hospitalized, police said after the attack.

Adolescents between the ages of 10 and 19 account for nearly two thirds of the 3 million under-19s living with HIV.

It said the epidemic's spread among adolescent girls is being fuelled by early sex, including with older men, forced sex, powerlessness in negotiating around sex, poverty and lack of access to confidential counselling and testing services.

Kenya reported good progress in the war against HIV/AIDS at the ongoing summit in Amsterdam, Wednesday, even as it emerged that the world could be facing an HIV prevention crisis.The National AIDS Control Council (NACC) Chief Executive Officer Dr Nduku Kilonzo said Kenya had achieved significant milestones in taming the numbers of new infections and also reducing cases of mother-to-child transmission (eMTCT) of the virus.

Knife attack kills one Israeli, wounds two others in West Bank
The latest bloodshed came five days after the United Nations and Egypt brokered a deal to halt a July 20 surge in violence. A spokesman for the Gaza Health Ministry said two Palestinians were killed and one was seriously wounded in the strikes.

Why? Because fewer men than women get tested for HIV, says the U.N. Studies show that in East and Southern African countries, men are significantly less likely than women to have been tested for HIV and therefore do not know their HIV status.

Actress and activist Charlize Theron addressed the issue in her speech at the conference. Robert Matiru, director of operations for Unitaid, which funds HIV drug projects, said young people are disproportionately affected by the epidemic that has claimed some 35 million lives since it erupted in the 1980s.

Describing his appeal as a "wake-up call" to the global community, Sidibé explained that "partial successes" in saving lives and stopping new infections some 1.4 million since 2010 had resulted in a lack of urgency among Member States.

A recent report of the International AIDS Society (IAS) highlighted the epidemic's "extraordinary impact" on adolescent girls and young women. "Young people have grown up, they are incredibly mobile, they move, they have forgotten that HIV is a risk, and we must, we cannot stop passing on this message", says Linda-Gail Bekker, director of organization.
