SAfAIDS Statement on Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October Breast Cancer Awareness Month
NEW YORK CITY, 22 October 2014 (UNDP) - Today, on the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, UNDP has released a new report on cash transfers and HIV prevention. Cash transfers are a major tool in the fight against poverty in its many forms.
HARARE, (Herald), 15 October 2014 - Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are on the increase in this country. This is a fact that can no longer be wished away. The National AIDS Council (NAC) last week released figures for cases recorded in Harare alone in the first six months of the year and they were not amusing. These high figures; coming soon after NAC also released similarly high and depressing numbers for STIs in other parts of the country, again in this very same year, shows that something is every wrong somewhere.
ADDIS ABABA (Sudan Tribune), 15 October 2015 - The UN is planning to conduct a multi-country HIV testing campaign in Africa to mark this year's World AIDS Day in a bid to set a new world record for the most number of HIV tests conducted in one day.
BLANTYRE, (MNA), 15 October 2014 - Authorities have called on people in the country to openly discuss HIV/AIDS related matters as one way of curbing the spread of the pandemic. Open discussions about the pandemic, according to Blantyre District AIDS Coordinator Loveness Chikumba, would help disseminate as much information as possible on the pandemic.
