SP - Notre Challenge pour 2030
Cameroon faces a mixed epidemic, both generalized and concentrated in certain high-risk population groups. HIV prevalence among the adult population aged 15-49 years is between 2.5% and 3.8% nationally. The country has put in place a multisectoral response through National Strategic Plans to fight HIV, AIDS and STIs, the latest of which covers the period from 2018 to 2022.
The activities carried out are in line with this plan, which aims, among other things, to reduce new infections among adolescents and children as well as key and vulnerable populations by emphasizing the strengthening of HIV prevention, to eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV by strengthening close monitoring of HIV-positive pregnant women on ARVs, to reduce HIV-related mortality, to fight against all forms of discrimination, and to improve the effectiveness of governance through an effective response. Significant and appreciable progress has been made. But, important and necessary adjustments are required. We must win the challenge through an effective, efficient and methodically planned response.
Making community interventions a priority. In the architecture of the national response, the community sector is an essential link in the HIV response. It is a privileged partner in prevention and the continuum of services and care. Its participation is based on its capacity to offer proximity services. It offers health services in areas sometimes beyond the reach of the institutional system and or difficult to access. In strategies to accelerate the response, community organizations through networking and lobbying will participate more in advocacy and strategic mobilization at the national and international level that will impact policy and regulatory changes in the health sector.
The objective is to reduce the ravages of the pandemic so that 90% of people know their serological status, 90% of people who test positive are put on ARV treatment and 90% of people on ARV obtain an undetectable viral load in our country in the near future. In the same vein, it is a question of moving towards an AIDS-free generation in Cameroon. In any case, this is the hope that keeps us at the CNLS and that we wish to communicate to you through this site.
