Strategic goal of UNAIDS by 2015: 6. Social protection and support

UNAIDS strategy goal by 2015:

  • People living with HIV and households affected by HIV are addressed in all national social protection strategies and have access to essential care and support.

Enhanced social protection can help reduce an individual’s chance of becoming infected with HIV (susceptibility) and reduce the likelihood that HIV will have damaging effects on individuals, households and communities (vulnerability). It can also help to ensure that efforts to expand universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support will reach the most difficult to reach. UNAIDS calls for ensuring existing social protection mechanisms include people living with HIV, populations at higher risk, vulnerable populations and households in order that they can access the services and entitlements that they need. Also, UNAIDS calls for promoting policies and programmes that are inclusive, non-stigmatizing and non-discriminatory, and promote equity.

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.
