Militaries in West, Central Africa Launch Regional HIV Network

July 13, 2009

"Military forces from 20 countries in West and Central Africa have launched a regional HIV network to share information on combating HIV within their ranks and communities, following the example of other military-led efforts to fight the spread of HIV," IRIN reports. Several studies have shown that armed forces in sub-Saharan Africa, with the exception of Ethiopia's military, have higher HIV prevalence rates than civilian populations. The article includes additional information about the efforts in Ghana and Nigeria (7/9).
