The training of people involved in the fight against HIV and AIDS is very important as it is sustainable. This is the reason why MONUSCO HIV/AIDS Unit is expanding its innovative training programme to both the grassroots and public sector in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
C’est l’histoire d’une lutte. L’histoire de deux femmes, Elise et Philomène, l’une adolescente, l’autre mère de famille, toutes deux séropositives. Dans cette lutte que Philomène et Elise ont chacune à leur manière menée contre la maladie, c’est le dépistage et le traitement qui ont fait toute la différence.

Mme Zainab Hawa Bangura, Représentant spéciale du Secrétaire Général des Nations Unies chargée des questions des violences sexuelles liées aux conflits, a effectué un bref séjour en RDC du 29 au 31 mars 2015.
Le docteur Faustin Kitetele évoque avec vous la problématique de la prise en charge des adolescents touchés par le SIDA à travers l’histoire de John et le travail remarquable de l’hôpital Kalembe-Lembe, pionnier dans la prise en charge des jeunes atteints par le VIH.
Doctor Faustin Kitetele brings up the issue of taking care of adolescents affected by AIDS through the story of John and the remarkable work of the Kalembe-Lembe Hospital, a pioneer in caring for young people with HIV.
It should be noted that in the DRC, one of the weak links in the battle against the HIV/AIDS epidemic is taking care of sick children and young people. There is a huge gap in treatment between adults and children affected by HIV; in 2013, only 12% of children younger than 15 who needed treatment received it (source: PNLS, 2013).

How can a simple wall chart help improve immunization coverage?
How can mobile technology identify beneficiaries when they lack identity documentation?
