HIV infections have reached epidemic proportions in many developing nations around the world. While access to cheap, effective drug treatments has made it possible to live a longer, more active life with the HIV virus, the key to controlling the epidemic remains well-run, effective prevention programs. While prevention programs must be tailored to the specific countries in which they are run, any effective programs for HIV prevention will have a few common characteristics.
First, effective prevention programs must receive sufficient and sustained funding. Many programs worldwide receive large initial grants, but these grants are not followed by sustained funding. In order to be effective, HIV programs need to receive a stable level of funding over many years.
Second, an effective HIV prevention program must include an education program regarding the disease that reaches large sections of the population, especially high-risk sections of the population. Furthermore, that education program must stress realistic ways in which people can reduce their risk of contracting the HIV virus.
Finally, an effective program must create an atmosphere of acceptance for those living with the virus. In many parts of the world, individuals with HIV are treated as outcasts. This encourages individuals with the virus to keep their illness secret, making it more likely they will infect others. In addition, it discourages people who believe they might have the virus from getting tested. These problems can only be solved by creating an atmosphere where HIV patients are accepted rather than rejected.
The reading and lecture materials are concerned with the characteristics of a successful HIV prevention program. The professor discusses Thailand's HIV prevention program to illustrates the claim made in the reading passage.
First of all, the professor discusses investing more money and having stable funding contribute to the success of Thailand's HIV prevention program. In fact, he says that Thailand's HIV prevention program used to be poorly funded and not high priority by the government. However, Thailand government realized the dangerous of HIV, so they decided to increase the funding by 2000 percent and sustain the fund of this program. This supports the claim of the reading passage that a successful HIV program need to receive a large and stable funding.
Secondly, the professor talks about Thailand was able to lower rate of new infection considerably by implementing aggressive education program. He argues that by teaching the people who is most contracting to the virus like drug users or young un marriage men/women. The education indicates the dangerous of sharing drug needle or unprotected sex to these people, thus the program is able decline the number of new infection. This illustrates the point made in the reading passage that education is essential in the prevention of HIV infection.
Finally, the professor mentions the effectiveness of Thailand's new law in HIV prevention. To illustrate this, he says that HIV infected people have been no longer fare being reported to the government. The result was more people were willing to go tested for HIV virus and thus, the infection rates went down. This exemplifies the point made in the reading passage that accepting HIV patients is able to decline the number of infection.
