Celebration of WORLD AIDS DAY 2015

Under this year’s theme “Getting to ZERO: ZERO New HIV Infections, ZERO Discrimination, ZERO AIDS Related Deaths” the day’s commemoration in Bamenda was one of Celebration. Celebrating the progression and advancement made over the decades in addressing HIV/AIDS. COMINSUD actively took part this day in promoting the “90-90-90 Target” through an exhibition and use of materials to sensitize the public on the importance to help end the AIDS epidemic.

That is by 2020, 90% of all people living with HIV will know their HIV status. 90% of all people with diagnosed HIV infection will receive sustained antiretroviral therapy and 90% of all people receiving antiretroviral therapy will have viral suppression.

The Governor threw more light on enhancing infected persons’ adherence to treatment, stating clearly-collecting the antiretroviral treatment from the Health center is not enough but taking the treatment correctly, every day and on time.

Yes! We can do it and we must do it” was a strong concluding emphasis made by Dr. Tayong of the Regional Technical Group (RTG) for the Fight against HIV/AIDS, to commemorate the World AIDS Day which is not just for a day but for a season.
