Ghana: Journalists Undergo HIV and AIDS Training
October 15, 2012
In Ghana's Northern Region, approximately 50 people -- journalists and medical practitioners -- recently completed a three-day training on HIV and AIDS to equip them with the knowledge to effectively report on preventing the spread of the disease. The training was part of the government's National Strategic Plan (NSP) 2011-2015 aimed at reducing by half the spread of HIV and AIDS -- especially through mother-to-child transmission -- to eventually stop new infections. The Ghana AIDS Commission (GAC) organized the training in collaboration with the Ghana Journalists Association. Topics included "The National Response to HIV and AIDS: Progress and Challenges" and "NSP 2011-2015: Towards Achieving Universal Access to Comprehensive HIV Services."
