THE PHELOPHEPA AIDS/HIV EDUCATION PROGRAM

The outlook of donor funding for HIV remains uncertain, given recently proposed 20% cut by the U.S. government of its global HIV funding. By 2020 $26.2 billion will be needed annually to meet global targets to end AIDS as a global public health threat by 2030. The next few years will be critical for making further progress on HIV by 2030; any delay in scaling up HIV interventions will result in additional HIV infections and deaths.

Kaiser/UNAIDS Study Finds Donor Government Funding for HIV Declined by 7% in 2016, Falling to Lowest Level Since 2010

 

New infections increasingly involve forms of the virus that are already resistant to the primary drugs used to treat and prevent HIV infection. The world is fast approaching the limits of manufacturing capacity for anti-HIV first-line drugs, and the ceiling is far lower for second- and third-line treatments. Finally, there aren’t sufficient financial resources applied to the AIDS problem now, and signals from major donors — especially the U.S. government — offer a grim future of diminished resources.

HOW THE TRAINS HELP WITH HIV/AIDS EDUCATION

Medical professionals in health/educational disciplines, administer primary and HIV/AIDS care on the trains, in the villages and schools.

The on-board Edu-Clinic [educational clinic) educate approximately 900 local volunteers who complete a five-day Basic Health Education Program annually.
