IPS Examines Progress on HIV/AIDS in the Caribbean

July 31, 2012

Inter Press Service reports on HIV/AIDS in the Caribbean, a region with "the second highest incidence of HIV/AIDS after sub-Saharan Africa." The news service highlights a report, titled "Together We Will End AIDS" and released by UNAIDS ahead of the XIX International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012) in Washington, D.C., last week, that "noted that AIDS-related deaths in the Caribbean have declined by almost 50 percent in 10 years." The news service discusses progress made in various countries in the region and quotes a number of experts and officials who spoke at or before the conference on issues such as education and awareness, vulnerable populations, and funding (Richards, 7/30).
