Two-Minute Take: World AIDS Day 2019

November 26, 2019 1 minute Read by Crystal Cazier
In honor of World AIDS Day on December 1, Bush Institute's Manager of Global Health Crystal Cazier reflects on the progress we've made in the fight against HIV/AIDS and on what we have left to accomplish.

 

This week, PEPFAR announced that 15.7 million people living with HIV have access to life-saving treatment. Through our Go Further partnership with PEPFAR, Merk, and UNAIDS, over 565,00 women living with HIV have been screened for cervical cancer.

Launched in May 2018, Go Further is an innovative public-private partnership committed to creating a healthier future for women. The partnership aims to reduce new cervical cancer cases by 95 percent among HIV-positive women in eight African countries that have some of the highest rates of HIV prevalence and cervical cancer incidence in the world.
