Global HIV AIDS Policy
the MDGs have to be met by the year 2030 and so the implementation of the policy has to be done within the given time frame as per the specifications of the MDG’s. different nations of the world have gone some miles in the implementation of the policy concerning HIV/AIDS that is stated in the MDGs that by 2030, there almost all communicable and preventable diseases should be eradicated. The steps that have been attained by the global society were discussed by this specific United Nations Paris Convention to assess the gains and hurdles met so far regarding the implementation. Statement of the Problem Different classes of people in the various countries all have the obligation of seeing to it that there is full implementation of this policy.
They have also had their chance to contribute but it can strongly be felt that in some of the countries especially in Sub-Saharan Africa, there is no clear process or guidelines of how these groups especially the religious classes can be involved to play their due part. In these areas, the Non-governmental organizations such as Red Cross, among other different national NGOs should all combine effort to help the government in combating this disease. Therefore, it has been observed that these NGOs are somehow reluctant and most of them have their mission and vision concerned with alleviating the suffering of mankind. Despite the slow speed in which the governments of the world have been responding to the war on HIV/AIDS, still, there are some who have completely disallowed other private investors to venture into the business and provide the services.
However, the issue here has been noted as the conflict of interest whereby the governments want the services of preventing HIV/AIDS provided freely to all the people such that none would be unable to afford. However, some few governments have realized this and solved it right away by allowing the private entities to operate by in the process subsidizing them so that services would be accessible at a cheap rate and the majority can be able to afford. In case of any problem that arises during the implementation of the HIV/AIDS policy in the different countries, it is upon the WHO to demand an explanation from those in the governments to explain the mess. Nonetheless, those in government in their countries have been delegated the authority and mandate of the WHO so that they perform their duties without fear.
The private investors are in most cases looking to increase their profits and many do not care about the negative impacts their actions could have on the population. Background of the Problem In many countries, there are no clear structures for addressing health issues. The HIV/AIDS has come as an emergency to them and most of the countries are still gagging their feet when it comes to acting fast and solving the problem. Over 50 million people today in the world are infected with HIV/AIDS. There is over 30,000 new infection is the world each and every day (Poku, 2017). This calls for urge of dealing with the menace and strict ways and policies. An ailing world is not economically productive. When a healthy person is infected with HIV/AIDS, he/she becomes susceptible to attacks by other diseases and viruses that are opportunistic in nature.
However, the policy has had its fair share of criticization and has been largely blamed by the different religious groups for campaigning for loose morals and sexual immorality since people could have sex and then run to the VCT centers to get tested and given the anti-retroviral drugs to prevent any infection of HIV/AIDS. However, the policymakers have not tired of forging the way forward for such societies. In fact, the implication of the policies has brought a completely different perspective in which the society should approach the issue. This is because it cannot just be assumed that the victims of HIV/AIDS are immoral in the society but even unsuspecting people have also found themselves on the receiving end (Duff et al.
There is, therefore, a dire need to help the affected and infected so that they learn how to cope, manage and care for the infected as well as take good control of the situation. The first one is the policy on the prevention of new infections in Africa, parts of South America, and Asia. These areas have been the leading regions which have proved that HIV/AIDS can kill and destroy the lives of many. The prevalence rates are so high and the population is not yet versed in prevention techniques. The rate at which the HIV/AIDS is spreading is worrying and the efforts to curb have been less fruitful. This is, therefore, reversing the gains that have so far been achieved in the fight against the disease.
As a result, the living standards of the people are improved tremendously. The more immediate problems than HIV/AIDS are addressed using the national resources. in dealing with this policy of preventing new cases of infections, a lot of resources end up being wasted and not utilized in the desired manner. For instance, condoms that are meant to be used to prevent infection of HIV/AIDS are used by other unintended beneficiaries such as brothels who re-sell the contraceptives to their clients. In some societies, condoms are disposed instead of being used in the proper intended manner. It is quite a burden for the infected in such societies. Recommendations The three policies should be instituted and implemented with great care. They include efforts to: i.
