Supporting World Aids Day 2015

The world has come a long way since 2000, achieving the global target of halting and reversing the spread of HIV.

New infections have fallen by 35% since 2000 and AIDS-related deaths by 24%. Some 16 million people are now receiving antiretroviral treatment – more than 11 million of them in Africa. Ten million men in East- and Southern Africa have volunteered for medical male circumcision – a procedure that reduces a man’s risk of contracting HIV by 60%.

On World AIDS Day, new WHO recommendations will launch to help achieve these targets. These include the use of innovative HIV testing methods; customizing treatment approaches to meet the full diversity of people’s needs; and offering a wider spectrum of prevention options.

For Fiji, we had a march here in the sugar city hosted by the Lautoka Hub Family at Shirley Park…and many more happening around the country

Source: Fiji Times – NATIONAL World AIDS Day celebrations in Labasa today are expected to result in a sea of red as people march through the northern town in the colour to mark the international event.

The North has high cases of HIV/AIDS so we need to raise awareness about this killer disease and fight its spread in our communities.

So going red today for this day the 1st of December 2015…
