I have seen many advertisements on Aid.Why is it that the government do not used it on the aid patient or some other purposes?
There is strong correlation between advertisement and aids. If you notice there has been decreased in the number of aid cases over the years. Don’t look at the advertisement as a waste of time.

The GOG along with the ministry of health have been working hard to educate the people of how to prevent the HIV virus, millions of dollars have been allocated to the ministry of health towards this sector. Many primary and secondary schools are being taught about protection and prevention measures since it’s the youths who are the future.
In my point of view parents pay an important role to talk to their children on this issue. Guyana is rated on of the highest rated member of the Caribbean to carry HIV victims.

Lets us all support the ministry of Health in helping the people living with AIDS. THE Ministry of Health has met and surpassed the targeted 10,000 persons it set for National Testing Day observed in Guyana last November 19.

Minister of Health, Dr Leslie Ramsammy, who made the disclosure, said 15,637 had been tested, more than 50 per cent in excess of the target.

The Government of Guyana through Ministry of Health has been making tremendous strides in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Their efforts are bearing fruit, since we see a decline in the rate of transmission, a more educated population and a change in behavioural patterns.
The establishment of the following are a testament of Government’s efforts to fight the dreaded pandemic:
1. The establishment of a Nation Aids Secretariat and Programme.
2. The establishment of the PMTCP programme.
3. The issuing of free counselling and testing (VCT).
4. The availability of free Anti Retro Viral (ARV) drugs to patients.
5. The distribution of free condoms.
6. The encouragement of workplace HIV AIDS policies.
7. Millions are being spent of public relation and sensitisation
8. The availability of funds, grant and loans from the GOG and other donor funding to groups and organisation
9. A national hotline and website
10. Encouragement and support to the establishment of care institutions, NGO’s and Health and Youth clubs.
These are just some of the initiatives that have been developed and enacted. Together these and the support of persons sympathetic to the cause have made a significant impact especially on stigmata and discrimination associated with HIV\AIDS. We have seen this displayed recently, during the national testing week, where here in Guyana over 15000 people queued up in public places to be tested for HIV/AIDS.
This pandemic and only be overcome if we continue to prevent the transmission, stop the discrimination, respect ourselves and keep the promise.

The general number of AIDS patients has decreased over time especially as the government has focused on preventing the problem from becoming bigger. People have been made more aware of how they can get it and how to prevent it and also where to seek help if they are infected.
