POZ Magazine: Forecasting the Future of HIV

As much as $722 billion might be needed to tackle HIV by 2031, if no cure or vaccine is found, according to new research published in The Lancet and reported by PlusNews. Study authors predict that in the next 20 years, annual HIV infections will be halved to about 1.2 million. However, new treatment guidelines will raise costs by 43 percent, and about one third of funding must be spent in Africa to stop the epidemic.  Researchers noted that the amount of money needed could drop to $400 billion if countries restructured their AIDS funding policies now.

HIV, Development and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and social development in Africa has its challenges. You will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa, about politics and whatever triggers my interest. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me. Blogging means to initiate thoughts and discussions and for the writer to formulate what is loosely running around in the heart and mind in need of being sorted and spoken out.
