Accelerating Action Against AIDS in Africa
| Price: $ 13.5
AIDS has finally reached the top of the African agenda. Two years after the 12th International Conference on AIDS and STDs in Africa ended with an impassioned plea for more resources to fight the pandemic, money is beginning to flow to the continent in significant amounts. The World Bank's Multi-Country HIV/AIDS Programme (MAP) and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria are fuelling the African HIV/AIDS response to new heights. Recent funding commitments by the United States of America, Europe and Japan are inspiring hope of even greater achievements. The drivers of this increasingly powerful machine are Africa's political leaders, civil society and groups of people living with HIV/AIDS. More and more Africans are ringing the alarm bells against AIDS, taking concrete action themselves and demanding more action from others. This report summarizes the challenges Africa faces as it channels new resources into effective programming to confront HIV/AIDS. It also highlights successful initiatives that have inspired hope that the continent can one day free itself of the disease, with or without a vaccine or medical cure. These examples prove that human intervention works, even under the most difficult conditions.
