AIDS Increasing




AIDS shows signs of slowing down


Joe De Capua [reporter] June 14, 2007(“World Bank report Says AIDS Epidemic Beginning to Slow in Many Parts of Africa,” Voice of America News, July 23, 2007, http://web.lexis-nexis.com.ezproxy.mnl.umkc.edu/universe/document?_m=3c92c89f0f4d88e39d4802e6b7c656cb&_docnum=15&wchp=dGLbVzb-zSkVA&_md5=9810fa4da5e317d6f4e84b2799975ed1 lexis-nexis, GB)

The World Bank says the mobilization of grassroots communities, condoms and anti-retroviral drugs is "beginning to slow the pace of Africa's HIV/AIDS epidemic." The disease killed more than two million adults and children on the continent last year. The World bank has released a new report to assess its billion-dollar program set-up in 2000 " The Africa Multi-Country AIDS Program. It says besides better prevention, care and treatment, positive changes are being made in what it calls "social immune systems." That is, people changing their beliefs, perceptions and behavior regarding HIV/AIDS. Phil Hay is a senior bank advisor on hand for the release of the report in Kigali. "This new report, which we launched in Rwanda, was going back over the last six years and basically says what did a billion dollars buy? Now the mission of that program is to dramatically increase access to HIV prevention, care and treatment programs, with the whole idea of stopping the transmission of mother-to-child spread of the disease, especially looking after AIDS orphans," he says. The report says signs the epidemic is slowing can be seen in Uganda, Kenya and Zimbabwe, as well as urban Ethiopia, Rwanda, Burundi, Malawi and Zambia. However, the report notes that Southern Africa "remains the epicenter of Africa's epidemic with unprecedented infection rates." The goal of the World Bank's Multi-Country AIDS Program is to offer "long term support to any country with a sound HIV/AIDS strategy and action plan." Hay says, "The country's voice is the unmistakable voice of authenticity. So, the bank is prepared to come in and help countries with their AIDS fighting efforts, but the country, as a down payment in a way, has to show it's serious. And a declaration of that seriousness is by coming up with its own plan."

 

AIDS is on the rise and doesn’t seem to be stopping


Craig Timberg [reporter] June 20, 2007(“Spread of AIDS in Africa Is Outpacing Treatment,” The Washington Post, July 23, 2007 lexis-nexis, GB)

The problem is not the medicine, which is among the most powerful in the world. In places such as the United States and Europe, where prevention programs were already succeeding against much smaller epidemics, the arrival of antiretroviral drugs was a turning point in the battle against AIDS. But in sub-Saharan Africa, prevention programs have mostly failed to curb the behavior -- especially the habit of maintaining several sexual partners at a time -- that drives the epidemic, research indicates. So while antiretroviral drugs have prolonged and improved the lives of hundreds of thousands of Africans, millions more are being newly infected with a disease that is still incurable and, for most, terminal. In South Africa, AIDS deaths are projected to increase at least through 2025 despite steadily improving access to antiretrovirals, according to the Actuarial Society of South Africa. The prognosis on the rest of the continent is at least as bleak. Global health officials and AIDS activists once predicted that expanding treatment would bolster prevention efforts by encouraging more openness about the disease and making it easier to educate people on how to protect themselves from HIV. But among African countries with the most serious AIDS epidemics, the only one to report a recent drop in HIV rates is Zimbabwe, which has one of the region's smallest treatment programs. In neighboring South Africa, attention has shifted from attempting to prevent new infections to treating existing ones, said Suzanne Leclerc-Madlala, an anthropologist at the University of KwaZulu-Natal and a director of one of South Africa's largest AIDS organizations. In meetings, she said, maybe 10 minutes is spent discussing prevention for every hour focused on treatment.
