first_img Share UN Secretary General Ban Ki MoonADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AFP) – UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said Tuesday the world was headed for a “generation free of AIDS”, after UNAIDS reported a 35-per cent drop in new HIV infections from 15 years ago.The positive news was also coupled with calls for more funding, with the objective of eliminating the virus by 2030. The United Nations also warned that continuing stigmatisation of sex workers, drug users and homosexuals were barriers to progress.“The world has delivered. We have achieved and exceeded the goals regarding AIDS. We have 15 million people on HIV treatment,” Ban said in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, where he is attending a global development summit.“We are on the way to a generation free of AIDS,” Ban said. “The world has delivered on halting and reversing the AIDS epidemic. Now we must commit to ending the AIDS epidemic.”According to the UNAIDS report released on Tuesday in Geneva, there have been remarkable strides since the advent in 1996 of anti-retroviral drugs, which suppress the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).Though not a cure, the therapy creates a virtuous circle. The less the virus is in circulation, the less likely it is that people become infected.Although new HIV infections declined to two million in 2014 against 3.1 million 14 years ago and the number of new infections has noticeably decreased or remained stagnant, UNAIDS warned spending had plateaued.There are currently 36.9 million people living with HIV around the world. Around March this year, 15 million of them were accessing anti-retroviral therapy.“In 2011 world leaders called for reaching 15 million people with life-saving HIV treatment by 2015. And that is exactly what the world did — ahead of schedule,” said UNAIDS chief Michel Sidibe in a report entitled “How AIDS changed everything.”But the report said more needed to be done.“After a decade of unprecedented growth, financing for the AIDS response has levelled off. At the same time, the world now has compelling evidence that people with HIV benefit by accessing anti-retroviral therapy as early as possible,” it said.– ‘Stigma, discrimination and punitive laws’ –UNAIDS said further increases and efficient reallocation were needed to address the “increased need of earlier initiation of anti-retroviral therapy” and called for AIDS spending of $32 billion (29 billion euros) annually between now and 2020 in the hope of eliminating the virus by 2030.“Stigma, discrimination and punitive laws continue to affect the people most impacted by HIV and to block their access to HIV services in every region of the world,” the report said.“The criminalisation of sex work, drug use and same-sex sexual relationships among consenting adults hinders attempts to reach people at higher risk of HIV infection.”Sidibe said he was hopeful that the next decade would “give us a more effective vaccine”.The UN has set up an ambitious treatment target to help end the AIDS epidemic, aiming to ensure that 90 per cent of all people living with HIV will know their status and that 90 percent of those diagnosed with HIV will receive anti-retroviral therapy.The third target is that 90 per cent of all people receiving anti-retroviral therapy will have viral suppression.2015 is the deadline year for the Millennium Development Goals which in September 2000 rallied the world around a common 15-year agenda to tackle poverty and hunger, prevent deadly but treatable diseases and expand educational opportunities to all children.In September, world leaders will gather at the United Nations in New York to adopt a new agenda for sustainable development in which health is one of the top priorities.Sub-Saharan Africa remains the region worst hit by AIDS with 25.8 million people living with HIV. Last year, there were 1.4 million new HIV infections — a 39 per cent drop from 2000.Asia is a distant second with five million cases but there has been a recrudescence of new infections. Last year there were 340,000 new HIV infections and China, Indonesia and India accounted for 78 per cent of them.Medical charity Medecins sans Frontieres (MSF) hailed the strides made in the fight against AIDS but stressed that the world “cannot afford to lose any momentum”.“In some countries where we work, HIV treatment coverage is as low as 17 per cent, which stands in stark contrast to the UNAIDS goal of 90 percent treatment coverage,” it said. 52 Views   no discussions Share HealthInternationalLifestylePrint UN chief says world on way to ‘generation free of AIDS’ by: Associated Free Press – July 14, 2015center_img Sharing is caring!

first_imgHello, Jacob Hollister. Please don’t be David Njoku. Be more like Ricky Seals-Jones, as a matter of fact. We’ve touted Hollister most of the second half in our tight end rankings, and our Week 16 PPR TE rankings see him placed among the elites. It’d normally be weird for us to want any tight end to be like RSJ, but after Seals-Jones scored two revenge-game TDs against the Cardinals, fantasy owners in championship games would like to see Hollister match that output.Otherwise, though, the names in the top-10 are the usual suspects (minus Evan Engram, who would be in that top level if not for his nagging foot injury that got him onto Injured Reserve). Most likely, you’ve made it to fantasy championship week thanks to a solid TE (or a stream-against-the-Cardinals strategy). If you have a stud, the best strategy is just to play him. WEEK 16 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerIf you’re looking for a stream, though, and Hollister is already accounted for, the first try would be O.J. Howard. With receivers dropping like flies with bad hamstrings in Tampa Bay, Howard saw a season-high eight targets in Week 15 and probably will see a similar level of usage in Week 16 against the Texans. You could also give Dallas Goedert or Jonnu Smith a chance after they both had five catches in Week 15 (Smith added an impressive 57-yard run to showcase his athleticism).WEEK 16 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiverTyler Higbee might be a big question for a few of you. He’s balled out the past few weeks, and if you’ve been riding that production you might be playing for a title. To be frank, the San Francisco matchup in Week 16 is a bad one. But it seems like Jared Goff will keep throwing to Higbee, and if Hollister and Howard are both owned in your league, it’s probably fine to stick with the guy who’s had three straight 100-yard games.WEEK 16 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPThere will surely be some fantasy matchups that come down to Travis Kelce on Sunday night, and with Saturday action in Week 16, as well, there’s a lot to look forward to. Best of luck in your title games.MORE WEEK 16 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup Builder Reminder: Check back for updates during the week. For more individual TE analysis, click here.MORE WEEK 16: Waiver pickups | FAAB planning | Stock watch | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff tipsWeek 16 PPR Rankings: TEsThese rankings are for full-point PPR leagues.RankPlayer1Travis Kelce, KC @ CHI2George Kittle, SF vs. LAR3Zach Ertz, PHI vs. DAL4Jacob Hollister, SEA vs. ARZ5Austin Hooper, ATL vs. JAX6Hunter Henry, LAC vs. OAK7Darren Waller, OAK @ LAC8Mark Andrews, BAL @ CLE9Jared Cook, NO @ TEN10Tyler Higbee, LAR @ SF11O.J.
