The three targets set by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) said that by 2020 the country should reach the goal of having 90% of HIV-infected people diagnosed and that 90% of them were being treated and, in turn, 90% of them presented an undetectable viral load.

According to the data presented by the Directorate-General for Health (DGS), Portugal reached the 90-90-90 goal in 2017

Last year, the ministry of health announced, considering the 2016 data, that the first two goals had been achieved - 90% of the infected with diagnosis and 90% of the infected to be treated.

According to the directorate, Portugal also achieved the third goal of 90%, with 90% of patients receiving treatment with non-detectable viral load.

When the infection has an undetectable load, it means that it is non-transmissible, and the person has no capacity to infect others.
