DEC-1 World AIDS Day


Backed by the United Nations, the "Getting to Zero" campaign runs until 2015 and builds on last year’s successful World AIDS Day "Light for Rights" initiative encompassing a range of vital issues identified by key affected populations.The decision to go with the millennium development related goal of "Getting to Zero" comes after extensive discussions among people living with HIV, health activists, broader civil society and many others – more than a hundred organizations in all.The vision for this year’s World AIDS Day and beyond may be aspirational, but the journey towards its attainment is laid with concrete milestones.                   

  10 goals for 2015

· Sexual transmission of HIV reduced by half, including among young people, men who have sex with men and transmission in the context of sex work;

· Vertical transmission of HIV eliminated and AIDS-related maternal deaths reduced by half;

· All new HIV infections prevented among people who use drugs;

· Universal access to antiretroviral therapy for people living with HIV who are eligible for treatment;

· TB deaths among people living with HIV reduced by half;

· All people living with HIV and households affected by HIV are addressed in all national social protection strategies and have access to essential care and support;

· Countries with punitive laws and practices around HIV transmission, sex work, drug use or homosexuality that block effective responses reduced by half;

· HIV-related restrictions on entry, stay and residence eliminated in half of the countries that have such restrictions;

· HIV-specific needs of women and girls are addressed in at least half of all national HIV responses;

· Zero tolerance for gender-based violence..

In Siddha system RAN Therayhy is found to be very effective in the treatment of HIV infected persons by increasing the Immune status. It was proved by comparing the RTPCR levels of the diseased persons. The incidence of Opportunistic Infections  were  reduced for those undergoing Siddha Treatment.
