Education of HIV/AIDS is very important to help prevent from becoming infected with this deadly disease. There are many factors that are being looked at that may be associated with the affect of the transmission of HIV such as, gender relationships, social exclusion and poverty, etc. These issues happen every day and health care providers must help those infected with HIV/AIDS to start treatment right away (Mayo Group, 2010). A national health policy must formulate different guidelines what will enable the policy to help the government govern the public. This stage is really important to help bring health care policies together.
I worked directly with the HIV/AIDS population as well as individuals whose behaviors place them at high risk for becoming infected. I am currently the Supervisor for the AIDS Institute Linkage and Navigation Program where I am responsible for overseeing the delivery of services. These services encompass but are not limited to entitlements, referral to agencies that assist with identifying appropriate housing, referral to medical, mental health and substance use services. I also, oversee treatment adherence services which support clients in their readiness to begin (ARV) antiretroviral therapy and maintain adherence to their prescribed medication for treatment for HIV/AIDS.
An important point, the continuing public health threat of HIV/AIDS is multi-dimensional; thus, not resolvable by an individual organization. Hence, the reason collaborative bonds are crucial. Ending HIV/AIDS requires the efforts of the federal, state and local governments, state health departments, community organizations, primary care providers, linkage to testing, treatment, and
Joekes, E., & … Spittal, P. M. (2015) The Cedar Project: resilience in the face of HIV
In the early 1980s, with the discovery of a new infection primarily targeting the gay community, the BESTD Clinic in Milwaukee formed a special project called MAP or Milwaukee AIDS Project to address the crisis. The disease became more of a threat and the community needed more support. A new task force was created by combining the MAP directors, BESTD Clinic President and a few others to form the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin. Over time the organization continued to grow and has become Wisconsin’s largest and fastest growing HIV health care system. “Through its integrated medical, dental and mental health clinics along with pharmacy and dedicated social services that include, food pantries, legal programs and social work case management, more than 3,300 HIV patients in Wisconsin gain the health care and social services they need for long term survival with HIV disease.” (ARCW) Some of the material I found in the archives about the ARCW was their 2007-2011 Strategic Plan. It is an outline of how they plan to achieve their vision which is a “world without AIDS and to ensure that everyone with HIV disease will live a long and healthy life”. Within the plan there is six goals and under each goal there are
Just as clearly, experience shows that the right approaches, applied quickly enough with courage and resolve, can and do result in lower HIV infection rates and less suffering for those affected by the epidemic. An ever-growing AIDS epidemic is not inevitable; yet, unless action against the epidemic is scaled up drastically, the damage already done will seem minor compared with what lies ahead. This may sound dramatic, but it is hard to play down the effects of a disease that stands to kill more than half of the young adults in the countries where it has its firmest hold—most of them before they finish the work of caring for their children or providing for their elderly parents. Already, 18.8 million people around the world have died of AIDS, 3.8 million of them children. Nearly twice that many—34.3 million—are now living with HIV, the virus .
The fact that cases of new HIV infections are on the rise in many countries and the international community has been reluctant on their assistance, there is need to come up with more innovative funding methods as well as facilitate new sources of domestic funding to help manage the situation effectively. With an estimated $ 22-24 billion required to address the global HIV epidemic in 2015, a significant resources gap is anticipated in 2013, funding from donor government actually fell to

Additional forces that were mentioned in the case study included creating social change throughout not only in regards to the HIV/AIDS virus, but also within the populations that are more at risk. The main social problem that is initially presented in
In prioritizing for HIV component, a national dialogue was conducted to determine what approach the geographical targeting would adopt for the NFM application. As such, the following was conducted:
In the year 2000, the UN established eight ‘international development goals’ regarding: poverty, education, gender equality, child mortality, maternal health, HIV and other diseases, environmental sustainability and global partnership. (Nations, n.d.). For this paper, the HIV pandemic shall be analysed. The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is the virus that serves as root for the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome or AIDS which is a disease that compromises the human immune system supressing it and leaving the body open for other diseases and

The program’s purpose is “to reduce vulnerability to HIV and its impact in China through preventing further HIV infection; expanding care and support; reducing stigma and discrimination; and strengthening RCSC capacities to deliver and sustain scaled-up HIV programmes” (IFRC, 2007). The project will launch a national education campaign to reduce stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS. In consequence, the initiative would involve teachers in schools and health service workers to disseminate accurate information, media marketers to communicate to the masses, and public cooperation.
