Assignment: HIV/AIDS Prevention Programs

At the 2009 World AIDS Day, Ban Ki-moon, who was the Secretary General of the United Nations, spoke about the next steps to combat AIDS. Ban said (Global Commission, 2011):

I urge all countries to remove punitive laws, policies and practices that hamper the AIDS response…Successful AIDS responses do not punish people; they protect them…We must ensure that AIDS responses are based on evidence, not ideology, and reach those most in need and most a­ffected. (p. 1)

In 2010, The Global Commission on HIV and Law was launched by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) to make recommendations to countries for better HIV response and treatment. This commission was formed to help eradicate HIV/AIDS globally by changing cultural beliefs about the illness through legal changes, health prevention, and education. Consider how culture-specific concepts of HIV/AIDS, among other psychological processes, may impact the likelihood of successful prevention programming.
