Contents HIV and AIDS : the issues for Africa -- The challenge to governance and development -- Improving prevention strategies -- Treatment and care -- Financing the AIDS response
Summary Across Africa, people dying prematurely from AIDS continues to pose serious challenges to the ability of African states to maintain efficient public institutions and deliver sound policies and promote the rule of law. HIV infection patterns are continually changing; economic realities are making treatment adherence difficult and resistance to current drugs are beginning to emerge. These challenges can be faced and surmounted through better appreciation of the country-specific epidemic, use of better data for national response good governance and stronger political commitments at all levels of society. Therefore, a comprehensive and enhanced response to AIDS must be at the center of development strategies. This report presents key messages and policy recommendations formulated with a role of the views of people affected and infected by AIDS.--Publisher's description
