Strategic goal of UNAIDS by 2015: 4.HIV treatment

UNAIDS strategy goal by 2015:

  • Universal access to antiretroviral therapy for people living with HIV who are eligible for treatment.

More than 5.2 million people living with HIV are receiving HIV treatment. Increased access to treatment has made an extraordinary impact on HIV-related mortality, enabling people to lead healthy lives. However, more than 10 million people living with HIV are still waiting for life-saving treatment. UNAIDS calls for Treatment 2.0 to simplify the way HIV treatment is currently provided and to scale up access to life-saving medicines. Also needed, scaling up treatment coverage, bridging the gap between sexual and reproductive health and HIV, integrating nutritional support within treatment programmes, and increasing the number of skilled and equipped health workers.

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.
