  6. National HIV/AIDS Policy: a call for renewed action

    More than 20 years from the onset of the epidemic, HIV/AIDS remains a global challenge. According to the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), HIV/AIDS has particularly affected sub-Saharan Africa, with 28.5 million people estimated to be living with the virus in the region by 2001 (UNAIDS, 2001).
