October 28, 2009
The Organisation for the Coordination of the Struggle Against Epidemics in Central Africa (OCEAC) on Tuesday announced that the German government has granted $34 million to help prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS in central Africa, Agence France-Presse reports. "The Germany-backed project has three objectives: to ensure that condoms and female safe sex aids are available throughout the region; to educate people in order to change risky behaviour patterns; and to reduce the harm caused by the stigma and the discrimination practised against people living with HIV/AIDS," the news service writes (10/27).
