UNAIDS says the fight against the AIDS epidemic - in which 37 million people worldwide are infected with the incurable HIV virus - is at a "precarious point", with deaths falling, treatment rates rising, but rates of new HIV infections stubbornly high.

Teenage girls are significantly impacted by the global AIDS crisis, with around 30 adolescents becoming infected with the human immunodeficiency virus, or HIV, every hour, according to a new UNICEF report.

"In most countries, women and girls lack access to information, to services, or even just the power to say no to unsafe sex", she said.

Henrietta Fore, head of the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF), referred to it as a "crisis of health".

The new results of the Namibia Population-Based HIV Impact Assessment (NAMPHIA) show that the country is now at 86:96:91, said the permanent secretary of health Petronella Masabane.

Similarly, Nigeria now ranks the second largest country with HIV epidemic in the world, with 3.2 million living with the virus in 2016 data.

According to a new UNAIDS report, 47 per cent of new HIV infections globally affect key vulnerable populations, such as sex workers, and people who inject drugs.

"The epidemic's spread among adolescent girls is being fuelled by early sex, including with older males, forced sex, powerlessness in negotiating about sex, poverty, and lack of access to confidential counselling and testing services", it pointed out.

"Through our efforts, we aim to provide HIV treatment to an additional 1 million men and support over 90% of men in this age group to be virally suppressed to effectively interrupt HIV transmission." she said.

The billion-dollar project "MenStar" will target men living with or at risk of HIV in sub-Saharan Africa, which has been ravaged by AIDS since the 1980s.

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

"Unless we can reach young people and curb the epidemic among them... then we're not going to meet the targets" of the United Nations to end AIDS as a public health threat by 2030.

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.

According to the International AIDS Society (IAS), four out of ten African teenagers have already experienced physical or sexual violence from a man in their intimacy. "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".
