Mr Varadkar emphasised that it is virtually impossible for people who are HIV positive and getting treatment to pass on the disease and he urged everybody to know their HIV status.

It was part of a campaign to raise awareness and encourage people to know their HIV status.

In a report, the United Nations body said the global response toHIV/AIDS was at a "precarious point", adding that while treatment rates were rising and the number of deaths falling, "the success in saving lives has not been matched with equal success in reducing new HIV infections".

- One in four people, about 9 million, are unaware that they are HIV-positive. In 2017, 1.8 million people were newly infected and more than 40% of those affected still do not have access to treatment.

He told the Press Association: "A few months ago I was giving out awards, congratulating people who have spoken out about their HIV status, saying how courageous they were, and there was a feeling in the back of my mind saying, "Well, if I'm congratulating people, I also need to be so fearless to do that".

But prevention remains the most important goal.

In addition, the Cayman Islands Red Cross continues its work in the community and schools, offering education on sex, sexuality, HIV testing and counseling, as well as condom distribution.

Total Control of the Epidemic, Humana People to Peoples HIV & AIDS programme, is centered on the idea that “Only the people can liberate themselves from AIDS the epidemic.” Since 2000, TCE have reached over 20 million people across 12 countries in Africa and Asia, connecting them with the information, services and support they need to live healthy and positive lives.

For local sexual health workers, their hard work has paid off.

"We are anxious about treatment not being available as regular as it should".

Seven patients in the Cayman Islands were diagnosed with HIV between January and the end of September this year, bringing the total number of HIV-positive people in Cayman to 72, according to Health Minister Dwayne Seymour. In Namibia, the country has achieved success in fighting HIV and AIDS and attaining the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets.
