AID FOR AIDS Dominican Republic filled with joy and happiness in the most beautiful season of the year during the celebration of Christmas Eve. This year, the Museo Trampolín held more than 200 children, who attended this celebration along with their families and loved ones. This warm event was only possible thanks to the support of people like Ana Messina, Carmen Olavarrieta, Claudia Messina, Rosa Amalia García, Ninoska Imbert, among many others. Each year our Child Program provides medicines and basic services to hundreds of children in Dominican Republic, Latin America and the world. In addition, we provide emotional support, recreational activities and general advice, among many other activities.

In Argentina, about 60 thousand people receive free antiretroviral therapy through more than 350 health establishments, located throughout the country. Epidemiological data shows more than 110 thousand people with HIV, and 30% of them are unaware of their diagnosis. Carlos Falistocco, responsible for the direction of AIDS and sexually transmitted infection (STIs) of the Ministry of Health in Argentina, said that “now Argentina will provide universal access to treatment, which means that those who are diagnosed, and want to be treated, will receive free medication”. Now doctors can offer treatment when appropriate, and people with HIV will decide whether they want to start their treatment. “HIV testing, and the decision to start the medication is voluntarily. HIV treatment is not an obligation, it’s a right”. Said Falistocco. Argentina has made major changes in recent times and many advances in response to HIV. Certainly, civil society has been an essential part…

Last week was held the 35th UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board in Geneva (Switzerland). The Executive Director of UNAIDS, Michel Sidibé, took the opportunity to strengthen the commitment and objectives of this agency. Also, he highlighted the importance of triple investment and support in civil society. Of all resources in response to the epidemic worldwide, only 1% reach civil society organizations. The goal is to achieve, by 2030, a budget of more than 3% for these organizations. Since that the final documents of the Open-ended Working Group, the Finance Committee and the report of the Secretary General are already on the table, we have a clear idea about the position of HIV on this global agenda. Even though the issue of key population has been pointed out during this meeting, other aspects such as right to health, among others, haven’t been mentioned. Also, right to health has been barely mentioned. In…

Youth should be taken into account in the construction of national responses to HIV

The HIV prevalence rate among the general population (15-49) in Latin America is 0.4%. We’re talking about an epidemic which is mostly concentrated in high risk populations (men who have sex with men, transgender people and sex workers). Youth awareness on HIV is often low. In most of the countries with available data, less than 50% of young people know how to prevent sexual transmission of HIV. The ignorance surrounding HIV is highly concentrated in women and marginalized groups, who do not have access to current and reliable information. More than 60% of countries still do not have effective strategies to deal with youth who have not completed their primary education. In Latin America, the prevention, attention, care and support to young people in relation to HIV has been highlighted during recent years in national responses to the epidemic. However, there are still challenges in the production of evidence that…
