Preventing HIV a Priority in Battle Against HIV/AIDS: Norway

June 10, 2011

HIV prevention and treatment "must be mutually reinforcing, and better treatment regimens need to be made available," Norway's minister of the environment and international development said Thursday at the UN General Assembly High-Level Meeting on AIDS. "Our experience is that the approaches that work well on HIV are those based on rights and on promoting the dignity of people," Erik Solheim said. "In the next phase of HIV response, we must take AIDS out of isolation and take an integrated approach. HIV and AIDS programs should be mainstreamed into national health systems." Solheim also stressed the importance of involving the next generation in the struggle, saying, "Young people must be given leadership roles in the AIDS response."
