Presidential Election concludes: Highest vote value The value of each vote of an MP was 708.Among the States, each vote in Uttar Pradesh had the highest value of 208, while each vote from Sikkim had the lowest value of seven Page 7: Half of HIV-infected get treatment now: UNAIDS The report, Ending AIDS: Progress towards the 90-90-90 target, is the annual scorecard for progress . The latest UNAIDS report reveals that more than half of all People Living with HIV (PLHIV) now have access to HIV treatment. For the first time since the global onset of the HIVIAIDS epidemic, the scales have tipped in favoUr of patients Global Statistics: I. UNAIDS met the 2015 target of 15 million people on treatment,and IS on track to double that number to 30 million and meet the 2020 target. 2. As of last year, I9.5 million of the 36.7 million HIV+ patients had access to treatment. 3. Deaths caused by AlDS have fallen from 1.9 million in 2005 to I million in 2016. 4. Further, globally AIDS-related deaths have almost halved since 2005.
Statistics about India I.The bad news is that the majority of the cases-nearly 95 per cent of the cases in 2016- were concentrated in just 10 countries, India being one of them. 2. India has 2.I million people living with HIV, with 80,000 new infections annually, as of 2016. In 2005, the annual incidence was 1,50,000 people 3. India is the country where most new HIV infections are occurring in the Asia-Pacific region. -While India has made big progress with new infections dropping significantly, the emergence of HIV in some locations that were earlier considered 'not high-burden' areas is a cause for concern. . While the world seems to be on track to reach the global target of 30 million people on treatment by 2020, access to medicines remains a major barrier and India plays a special role. The report states that "although important progress has been made in improving access to medicines for people living with HIV, insufficient availability and poor affordability of essential medicines in low- and middle-income countries remain major barriers.
Averting market failures India's Role Averting market failures: India's Role in global fight against AIDS . Actions focused on the intersections between intellectual property rights,innovation, and public health are vitally important for resolving market failures in medicine development and manufacture, unmet needs for research and development, and pricing. This is especially true in light of the concentration of the generic pharmaceutical industry in India, and the global AIDS response's continued reliance on the Indian industry, which supplied nearly 90% of antiretroviral medicines in low-and middle- income countries in 2015. The idea behind the 90-90-90 target is to: -Diagnose 90% of people who are HIV positive; Get 90% of the diagnosed HIV+ people on antiretroviral treatment, and -90% of those on antiretrovirals should be virally suppressed This is attained when an HIV+ patient's viral load reaches an undetectable level, curbing transmission This is attained when an HIlV+ patient's viral load reaches an undetectable level, curbing
Day 2: Right to Privacy Debate . Why is sharing data with state a problem If 99% of citizens are unconcerned, about sharing personal data with private players, how s it qualitatively different if the state has the same information, Justice D.Y. Chandrachud of the t asked. Most citizens are unconcerned about where or how their personal data is used. You say there are 35 crore Internet users and 18 crore telephone users, but 99% of people are not concerned,When you operate your iPad with your thumbprint, your data is public Judge. Answering Justice Chandrachud about the unconcerned, citizen, Mr. Poovayya said that even if one citizen was concerned about how, where and who uses his personal data, it is an obligation under the Constitution to protect his dignity and privacy. . Right to privacy does not stand on the pedestal of secrecy,it holds forth from the pedestal of dignity. . The petitioners have questioned the mammoth exercise; whether the informed consent of the citizens was taken before they parted with their personal details and whether there was information given to people about how and where their personal data would be used. Finally, the government had not specified in a statutory law, where the data would be protectively stored.
Pedestal of secrecy . Pedestal of secrec My informed surrender of data to a private player in this digital age is not my surrender of my personal data to all. If this private player takes my data and gives it to all on the Internet, then I can sue him for breach of contract. . But if I give it to the state, where are the corresponding restrictions and deterrents? Chilling effect . He said the very apprehension that the state is 'watching' chills the citizens' rights Unlimited power of the government to collect, assemble, analyse, profile and use my personal data, chills me. That is, even if the state does not do so. But again, I may be a favourite of the state now, but they can use my personal data against me if I ever cross them years later, Mr. Poovayya submitted No reasonable expectation of privacy is ill- suited in a digital age.
