POZ Magazine: India Expands Female Condom Program

India will expand its female condom program from eight states to 17 in an effort to control HIV rates among female sex workers and other women at high risk, The Times of India reports. The program empowers women to encourage condom use with their partners and to address concerns about male partners’ unwillingness to use protection. The program could expand nationwide once data from the 17 states is reviewed. Nearly 50 percent of new HIV cases annually in India occur among women.

HIV, AIDS and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and AIDS in Africa is often a challenge. Living in Africa has also its challenges. On the other hand I feel very much blessed having all the three. So you will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa and essential information and developments in the field of HIV and AIDS. And in between personal stories and thoughts. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me - blogs - "thinking loud" so to speak is a ways of communication and exchange of ideas.
