UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé congratulated the country on the dramatic decline in new HIV infections it has achieved during the past ten years on 17 December, while on an official visit to Ethiopia. Between 2001 and 2011, the rate of new HIV infections in Ethiopia among adults has been reduced by 90%.

“This drop in new HIV infections is a huge breakthrough,” said Mr Sidibé. “Ethiopia’s achievement demonstrates to the world that it is possible to prevent HIV in sub-Saharan Africa.”
