The December newsletter: the day after World AIDS Day!

World AIDS Day, observed December 1 every year, dedicated to raise awareness of AIDS caused by the spread of HIV infection.  We do not only remember the 39 million people that died of AIDS, but also realize problems the 35  million people that live with HIV worldwide encounter.

For many people living with HIV that are on proper treatment it has become a chronic disease, and they live a normal productive life. But not everyone is on the treatment they need,  they their families and their health care workers face a 24/7, year around challenge. Healthefoundation is supporting them in this task by training health care workers in the most recent antiretroviral developments and giving the best care possible in any circumstances.

This year on World AIDS day we are busy preparing for three workshops in December. We will train in Cameroon, Malawi and Uganda thanks to generous funding from Porticus foundation, Liberty foundation and Janssen pharmaceuticals we can train this month alone 200 health care workers in Africa!
