UNAIDS Mideast Regional Director Discusses HIV/AIDS Strategy With VOA News

July 8, 2010

VOA News features a Q&A with Hina Khatib, Middle East and North Africa regional director of UNAIDS, following the organization's report on HIV/AIDS in the region. Khatib said: "we'll never have an epidemic of HIV in the region. But still, there is evidence that HIV is growing among key populations." Khatib discusses obstacles to getting people tested and treated, including stigma, and the UNAIDS's plan for addressing HIV. The agency is "working with other countries on improving national strategies. So it's much more targeted ... What's next is actually to have concerted efforts to bring up awareness," she said (Hilleary, 7/7).
