UNICEF: More Adolescents Die of AIDS

1 Dec


Health & Family

While HIV infects a declining number of children, the amount of AIDS-related deaths among adolescents is rising sharply.

According to a UNICEF report released on Friday, 50% more people between the ages of 10 and 19 died because of AIDS in 2012 compared to 2005. Among children in low- and middle-income countries, only 34% received the treatment they needed, compared to 64% of adults.

“It’s a matter of reaching the most vulnerable adolescents with effective programmes – urgently,” said UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake.

During the same period, however, improved maternity care spared 850,000 infants of being infected by HIV.
