President Jacob Zuma has welcomed the United Nations AIDS report which has revealed significant progress the country has made in the fight against the HIV/Aids epidemic.

UNAIDS declared that the goal of 15 million people on life-saving HIV treatment by 2015 has been met and exceeded nine months ahead of schedule.

Presidential Spokesperson Harold Maloka said we further recognise the turnaround in decline of life expectancy that South Africa has recorded in 10 years rising from 51-years in 2005 to 61-years in 2014.

“The President has further on behalf of government and South Africans to thank and gratefully applauded the work of the South African National Aids Counsel including all health professionals in their work in the fight against HIV/AIDS”

He has however, cautioned all South Africans that we have not necessarily reached our target where South Africa will be HIV/AIDS free country by 2030, Maloka added.
