HIV environment in Brazil

Santa Catarina, a southern province of Brazil, registered more than 11,000 AIDS deaths in 2015.1 Last year, 18% of notified AIDS cases in Florianópolis, the capital of the province, were among 15- 24 year-olds.1 This is a significant challenge for the local health system and highlights the need to add new initiatives for prevention, early HIV diagnosis and better treatment adherence.
