White Paper on HIV-AIDS
The World Youth Alliance White Paper on HIV/AIDS presents a person-centered response to an epidemic that has ravaged many countries, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. The white paper proposes evidence-based and person-centered treatment, such as the provision of antiretroviral drugs, and prevention strategies, namely a reduction in concurrent partners and a delay in sexual debut. The white paper also evaluates harm reduction approaches that have not proven effective in generalized epidemics, such as condom promotion. The white paper ends with an evaluation of UNAIDS' harm reduction strategies and a call for UNAIDS to start emphasizing a person-centered response that reflects science and culture.
