Raising HIV awareness among displaced communities

Report
UNAIDS

Anywur Mayan took her first HIV test two years ago. A health worker came to her house in rural Jonglei State and briefly explained that he was checking her for a virus. He pricked her finger and drew some blood. A few minutes later he told her the test had come back negative and left.

She did not really learn what HIV is or how it is spread until early June this year, after she had moved hundreds of miles from her Jonglei home to escape fighting there. Her new settlement Nimule—a border town near South Sudan’s border with Uganda—is safer, but has much higher HIV prevalence.

Zambia: Power of Partnerships

Irene Sinzi stood eagerly outside of her home in the village of Mufumbwe, in Zambia’s North-Western province, waiting to receive her insecticide-treated net. It was an important day for Irene and her one-year-old child, as the Government of Zambia is undertaking the mass distribution of nearly nine million nets, simultaneously distributing them to all provinces across the country.

“I’ve had malaria before and it was terrible,” said the 21-year old mother. “I’m so happy because this mosquito net will protect us from malaria.”
