Researchers from Joint United Nations Programme on HIV-AIDS Detail New Studies and Findings in the Area of Globalization and Health


2012 NOV 12 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at AIDS Weekly -- A new study on Globalization and Health is now available. According to news reporting originating from Geneva, Switzerland, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, " For the first time since AIDS erupted as worldwide emergency, global leaders, the scientific community, activists and people living with HIV are venturing to speak about the end to the pandemic. Signs of hope abound: over 8 million people are receiving life-saving treatment, the number of new infections is on significant decline, the remarkable evidence of treatment's impact on preventing new infections and the aspiration of zero new HIV infections among children is firmly within grasp."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Joint United Nations Programme on HIV-AIDS, "This progress, won by people living with HIV and countries with support from partners such as the US programme PEPFAR, the Clinton Health Access Initiative and untold more, embodies global solidarity to bring about an AIDS-free generation. Shared responsibility and global solidarity represents a normative ideal to which both individual stakeholders and the global community must subscribe and embrace if our collective vision of an AIDS-free world is to be realised. The idea of shared responsibility and global solidarity needs to goes further than raising and investing resources and extend to the level of control countries take of their AIDS response."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "This editorial explores five areas that require further attention."
