Is an HIV free generation possible

Posted December 8, 2011 from Uganda

Every year on December 1, the world celebrates World Aids day, a day that was set aside to reflect on efforts made by man in fighting against HIV and AIDS. Many events and activities are organized world wide to raise awareness, commemorate those who have passed on and devise new means of HIV prevention. This years’ world Aids day was on Getting to Zero, Zero new infections, Zero discrimination and Zero Aids- related death. Despite the many efforts, increased funding as well as innovation in HIV treatment and prevention, there are many new HIV infections every year. How can we prevent new infections? The good news so far in HIV prevention is prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV. Unfortunately not all HIV positive mothers can have access to such service and we still see new HIV infections in new born babies.
