Papua New Guinea is still behind in its efforts towards achieving its global target to eliminate HIV and AIDS by 2030 compared to other countries.
Acting Director of the National Aids Council Tony Lupiwa attributed this to the lack of support to the council's programs.
He said without these activities and programs the rate of HIV and AIDS is gradually increasing.
Mr Lupiwa said other countries throughout the world are doing well in reducing the rate of their new infections, unlike PNG.
He said one of the major issues affecting their program is the lack of funding from relevant authorities.
