By 2030, end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and neglected tropical diseases and combat hepatitis, water-borne diseases and other communicable diseases.

CSO data

Claim: Achieving

3.3.1 There were 523 people diagnosed with HIV in Ireland 2018.

3.3.2 There were 267 TB notifications in Ireland in 2019.

3.3.3 There were 81 cases of malaria in 2019.

3.3.4 The number of cases of Hepatitis B in Ireland dropped from 639 to 546 between 2010 and 2019.

3.3.5 There were zero people who required an intervention against a neglected tropical diseases in 2018.

The definition of ‘epidemic’ is occurring widely in a community at a particular time. The CSO does not disaggregate by community so it’s not possible to see the communities suffering most from these diseases. We have not fully eradicated them.
