Africa framework for intra-governmental action to end Aids, TB and malaria

Africa framework for intra-governmental action to end Aids, TB and malaria
- While there has been significant progress in the reduction of deaths and new rates of HIV infection, the West and Central Africa region is lagging behind. An emergency plan is needed urgently to accelerate the HIV response. Furthermore, despite the progress made, deaths and new infection rates remain high among young people especially young girls and women and more concerted efforts and investments are needed to address the their unmet needs. The situation is made worse by under investments in tuberculosis that have hampered efforts for increased coverage and access to services for detection and treatment. Furthermore, the gains against malaria are fragile and require additional investments for antimalarial drug and insecticide resistance monitoring, giving priority to surveillance, detection and response.
