POZ Magazine: South Africa to Spend $88B Over 20 Years on HIV Prevention

South Africa-one of the countries hardest hit by the AIDS epedemic-is stepping up efforts to reduce HIV rates, The Associated Press (AP) reports.  Having spent $2 billion in 2009 on prevention, the South African government plans to spend $88 billion during the next 20 years. This is projected to reduce the annual HIV rate from 500,000 to 350,000. An international team of experts has proposed a more extensive strategy to cut the annual HIV rate to 200,000 at a cost of $102 billion. There are questions as to whether international donors will provide sufficient financial support for the strategy.

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.
