"If countries don't provide comprehensive sexuality education, condoms, harm reduction or pre-exposure prophylaxis for key populations, this will ultimately translate into more new HIV infections, higher future treatment costs and a higher burden for health-care budgets and systems", said Mr. Sidibé.

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

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.

Majority of those who were infected HIV in 2017 are women, according to a new report by the UNICEF. "HIV thrives among the most vulnerable and marginalized, leaving teenage girls at the centre of the crisis".

According to a new report by the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF), out of those 30 new infections each hour among 15 to 19 year-olds in 2017, around 20 or two-thirds - were in girls.

Last year, 130,000 youngsters aged 19 and under died from AIDS, while 430,000 - nearly 50 every hour - were newly infected, the agency said.

Bank of Japan moves to lower yields
Stripping out both fresh food and energy costs, prices rose only 0.2 per cent in June from a year earlier. The yield curve's flattening has been seen by some as a sign of an impending recession.

Actress and activist Charlize Theron raised the issue in an address to conference delegates on Tuesday.

U.S Global AIDS Coordinator and Representative for the global health diplomacy, Ambassador Deborah Birx said PEPFAR will invest over $800 million in the next year to advance the goals of the MenStar Coalition.

"We need to make girls and women secure enough economically that they don't have to turn to sex work", she said.

UNAIDS said this month that the fight against HIV and AIDS was "slipping off track" and while deaths were falling and treatment rates rising, rates of new HIV infections threatened to derail efforts to defeat the disease.

"Four in 10 adolescent girls (aged 15-19) in Africa have experienced physical or sexual violence from an intimate partner, and the evidence is that gender-based violence is associated with a significantly greater risk of acquiring HIV", it said.

According to IAS president Linda-Gail Bekker, "in young people, it (the AIDS epidemic) is far from over". "If we want to win this fight, if we want to end AIDS once and for all, we must make men part of the solution" and teach them to protect themselves, "not only their wives and girlfriends, their sisters, and daughters, but also critically their brothers and their sons".
