Winnie Byanyima, executive director of UNAIDS, said countries where there are laws against LGBTQ people, or which criminialise sex work or personal drug use, are largely the places seeing a rise or plateau in new infections.

Stigma, discrimination and a lack of comprehensive sex education was also an issue, she said.

“This pushback - anti-human rights, anti-democratic, anti-gender equality - has put our work under threat,” she told Reuters in an interview in London ahead of the launch of a new report from the organization she leads. — Reuters
