Título: Guyana: Loggers Learn About Hiv/aids Prevention
Duración: 3:23 minutos
Descripción: Guyana, a country with a population of around 750000 has an HIV prevalence of 2.5 per cent in the age group of 15-49 which accounts for 52 per cent of the country’s population. The epidemic in Guyana is considered generalized, and it is mainly a heterosexual epidemic. Despite the encouraging signs with regard to reducing HIV prevalence among most-at-risk populations, there is still much to do to tackle the problem of scant awareness of HIV/AIDS. That’s why the Government of Guyana, through strong partnerships with employers and workers organizations are trying to increase the number of people being counselled and tested. Thanks to the support of the ILO, the United States Department of Labor (USDOL), the US President Emergency Fund for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and additional resources from the OPEC Fund for International Development (OFID), HIV/AIDS workplace education and prevention programmes are now reaching even the most remote areas of the country.
