Each year Burnet Institute proudly supports the Victorian launch of World AIDS Day.

Ending the HIV epidemic as a public health threat is now a real possibility.

However globally, an estimated 36.7 million people are living with HIV, with 46 percent on life-saving antiretroviral treatment, according to the World Health Organization.

In Australia, more than 26,400 people are living with HIV and according to annual HIV surveillance data more than 10 per cent are unaware of their HIV-positive status.
