Angola: Over 100,000 HIV-Infected People Monitored

June 4, 2013

On May 29, Angola Secretary of State for Science and Technology João Teta stated that the country's health authorities were monitoring approximately 113,228 of 300,000 HIV/AIDS patients. He emphasized that only 54,428 of the 113,228 monitored patients were receiving antiretroviral therapy. While speaking at the Second Scientific Activities on HIV/AIDS meeting, Teta stated that the four words used for fighting HIV -- solidarity, awareness, responsibility, and hope -- were used to invoke the spirit of fighting against the stigma and discrimination of HIV/AIDS-infected persons. He said the motto of the meeting, "Together We Can Change the Course of the Epidemic," required behavior focused on change, not only related to the disease, but also to the people affected.
