Challenge

HIV/AIDS is the main deathly sexually transmitted infection in our society today and has affected many villages in the NW Region of Cameroon. Studies shows that the age group highly affected with HIV/AIDS is the economically active population. Some villages in the NW Region suffer from prevalence rates above 10% due to social acceptance, and high incidence of polygamy, early marriages and early pregnancies, lack of knowledge and contraceptives have caused a high rise in the NW Region.

Solution

This project will organize a mobile health team who will be trained to provide education, awareness, medicine and health care and preventative measures to the population impacted with HIV/AIDS in 28 villages at the hospital and at the JRCCA Urgent Care Centers in the Four Zones. Reduce the stigma associated with the disease and work with women and girls to prevent mother to child transmission of HIV/AIDS.

Long-Term Impact

The government of Cameroon has in its Global objectives to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030. The age group which is currently affected with HIV/AIDS is the economically active population which will be able to actively participate in the economical development of the 28 villages. Enable everyone in the villages to become aware of their status and seek good health care and treatment at the hospital or JRCCA's Urgent Care Centers which will reduce the stigma associated with the disease.
