 THIS WEEK'S EPISODE: EPISODE: HIV/AIDS ACTION PLAN
 

This week’s episode provides an opportunity to come together to discuss the growing rate of HIV/AIDS, especially among people of African Descents. Part of the discussions will focus on the Millennium Development Goal-6, which aims to halt and begin to reverse the spread of HIV/AIDS by 2015 as well as provide universal access to treatment of HIV/AIDS for all those who need it. Reported Number of people receiving Antiretroviral Therapy compared to those needing it is approximately 36% globally.

 

Since the beginning of HIV/AIDS awareness, the virus has caused more deaths in African nations and to people of African descent than any other known diseases. Today, majority of the 50 top mostly affected countries are in Africa or a country with predominantly people of African descent. Why are HIV/AIDS affecting more people of African descent, and what are the existing options for country assistance in providing guidance, reference materials, and international quality assurance and mentoring for countries developing nationally owned strategies and action plans to eradicate HIV?
