As of a year ago, 19.5 million of the 36.7 million HIV+ patients had access to treatment.

More than 36 million people are living with HIV/AIDS, and 53 percent of them are getting the necessary therapy, which gives them a life expectancy closer to normal, according to the BBC.

Mr Sidibe added: 'Communities and families are thriving as AIDS is being pushed back'.

Mathematical modeling shows an additional 135,000 deaths and 105,000 new infections could follow in the next five years if no action is taken, and HIV treatment costs could increase by an extra $650 million during this time.

On the contrary, the progress against the set targets is trailing in Middle East, North Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

"The evidence is clear: HIV treatment is hugely beneficial for people who are infected, and HIV prevention is essential to reduce the numbers of new infections", Warren said.

Eastern and Southern Africa are the most affected regions and account for more than half of all people living with HIV/Aids, but both regions have made progress.

"Around 30 percent of people living with HIV still do not know their HIV status, while 17.1 million people living with HIV do not have access to antiretroviral therapy and more than half of all people living with HIV are not virally suppressed", the agency said.

In the MENA region, the annual number of adults and children dying due to AIDS-related illnesses increased from an estimated 3,600 in 2000 to more than 11,000 in 2016.

There is a 29% drop in the new HIV cases among all individuals and a 56% drop in HIV cases in children over the same period.

The report said the Asia-Pacific region's HIV epidemic is largely "concentrated among key populations, including sex workers and their clients, gay men and other men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, and transgender people". "There are many areas from infection control to stigma and discrimination against patients that need to be addressed", said Dr Adnan Zafar. "Declining worldwide resources will hamper our ability to reach the 17 million people who still need treatment". UNAIDS has a conflict in setting the treatment goals, whether it's three ones, three zeroes, or ninety-ninety-ninety and then telling us whether they've been met or not.

New infections among children nearly halved from 300,000 in 2010 to 160,000 a year ago, said the report.

Three-quarters of pregnant women with HIV also now have access to drugs that prevent their babies from becoming infected.
