One of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals is to put an end to AIDS by 2030, but the Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted prevention efforts, awareness and treatment of the disease, UNAIDS warned on Wednesday.

During the first year of the pandemic, 40 countries reported a decline in HIV testing and a reduction of prevention programs due to widespread lockdowns and issues with accessing health facilities, according to a Unicef report. EFE
