SCIENCE AND INNOVATION
You don’t need a PhD to get in on the science with us! For too long, the latest in HIV research and science was limited to laboratories and medical congresses – far away from the lives of the people it impacted the most. With ViiV Healthcare’s Science on the Sofa, we’re changing how we talk about HIV science by breaking down complex concepts in a new way to make the science accessible for everyone.
COMMITMENT TO GLOBAL HEALTH
The latest global statistics from UNAIDS, state that 1.7 million children are currently living with HIV and only half of those children with HIV have access to treatment, compared with 68% of adults.
One country that’s making headway in the fight against HIV is Botswana, where 360,000 people living with HIV (PLHIV) live. This is despite outstanding achievements in addressing gaps in HIV treatment and care in the country.
At a time when the global HIV community is convening for the 23rd International AIDS Conference, we invited HIV advocate and Community Facilitator Martha Clara Nakato from the Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR Alliance Uganda) who is also the Community of Action Facilitator for the WE LEAD program in Uganda and a former HER Voice Fund Ambassador, to share her insight on tackling the challenges young women living with HIV in Africa face and the role that partnerships have in the response
As Positive Action marks its 30th year, the need for investment and partnership in communities living with and affected by HIV has never been greater
