Ici et là, associations et ONG travaillent activement pour la prise en charge des personnes vivant avec le VIH. Une loi togolaise de 2005 pour la protection des personnes vis-à-vis du VIH devrait venir renforcer l'action de l'État. Après les travaux réalisés au Burkina Faso en 2005, l'IIPE continue son enquête en Afrique de l'Ouest pour analyser les stratégies les plus adaptées à chaque pays dans la lutte du système éducatif contre le VIH. …
