Par ailleurs, seulement 15 % des femmes déclarent avoir effectué un test du VIH. Malgré l’engagement des autorités Tchadiennes dans les domaines de la prévention et de la prise en charge du VIH et SIDA, le Tchad est classé parmi les 5 pays de la région de l’Afrique de l’Ouest et du Centre où la prévalence du VIH et Sida reste la plus élevée.

ERBIL, Iraq, 27 June 2016 – “Isra had missed out on a year of her education by the time she arrived here,” says Sirwan, deputy principal of Tarin School. “But she’s a very good student. It’s good that she’s back in class.”
