Africa can follow India's example in AIDS prevention, says Datta Ghosh
Meenakshi Datta Ghosh, Senior Consultant, Independent Evaluation Government of India, today commended the private sector for its initiative in the prevention and treatment of AIDS in India and emphasized that the African community could follow India's lead and successfully curb the spread of the disease.
"The primary drivers of public private participation across the management, care and support for people living with HIV/AIDS are the business organizations like FICCI, who persuade their strong member base to initiate, participate, sustain and lead some good management practices and the donor community along with the strong, community oriented NGOs," said Datta Ghosh, while speaking at the first 'HIV/AIDS Health Conclave' under the South to South HIV/AIDS Resource Exchange Project, 'Partnerships beyond Borders', organized by FICCI.
This conclave set the stage for productive deliberations with the industry and government stakeholders from India and the focus on African countries like Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia.
Speaking about the role of the National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO), Datta Ghosh said that NACO has been providing powerful leadership in the sphere and envisions an India where every person living with HIV has access to quality care and is treated with dignity.
On the occasion, a Knowledge Paper 'Partnership beyond Borders - Catalysing Solution' was also released.
