UNAIDS executive director says COVID-19 has disrupted prevention measures

The executive director for the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) Winnie Byanyima said Tuesday, on World AIDS Day, that the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted its prevention measures. Byanyima said during the first pandemic phase in particular, fewer people opted for testing and some dropped out of treatment because of long lines at clinics or other public safety measures that impeded access to treatment.
