TESTIMONY – HIV infection is still little known in some parts of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Seropositive women ignore their serological status, and transmit HIV to their newborns who sometimes die before their 1st birthday. Thanks to appropriate care, Josephine, 38 and seropositive, has brought her two seronegative children to the world who are in good health today. Let’s discover her story.

Cette semaine, les chercheurs, décideurs, cliniciens et activistes engagés dans la réponse au VIH participeront à ICASA2017, à Abidjan, en Côte d’Ivoire. En plein cœur de l’Afrique de l’Ouest et centrale, il n’y a pas de meilleur endroit, pour les équipes médicales de MSF et moi-même, pour mettre en lumière quelques-unes des raisons qui empêchent des millions de personnes vivant avec le VIH dans la région d’accéder au traitement vital pour elles. Elles doivent être prises en compte pour que le thème de cette année « une approche différente vers la fin du SIDA » se concrétise.

This week, researchers, policy makers, clinicians and activists involved in the HIV response will attend ICASA2017, in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire. Being at the heart of West and Central Africa, there is no better place for me and my medical colleagues at MSF to call out some of the main reasons preventing millions of people in the region from getting lifesaving HIV treatment. These must be addressed for this year’s theme of ‘delivering differently’ to be realised.
