Thoughts, inside, comments of a Catholic priest

Strategic goal of UNAIDS by 2015: 10. Gender-based violence

UNAIDS strategy goal by 2015:

  • Zero tolerance for gender-based violence.

Violence and the threat of violence can hamper people’s ability to adequately protect themselves from HIV infection and assert healthy sexual decision-making. In many countries, sex workers, people who use drugs and sexual minorities experience illegal law enforcement in the form of violence, rape, harassment and arbitrary arrest. All forms of gender-based violence and discrimination—against women and girls, men who have sex with men, transgender people and sex workers—should be recognised as human rights violations and as elements that can increase vulnerability to HIV. UNAIDS calls for programmes to eliminate gender-based violence and discrimination.

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.
