“While major scientific advances have been made in the fight against HIV/AIDS there is still a long way to go globally but knowing your status is a vital first step” said Dr. D’Auvergne.
“We are encouraged by advances in the OECS, with the Commission’s Pharmaceutical Procurement Service upholding the region as a leader in ensuring that one hundred percent of all affected populations have ready access to affordable anti-retroviral medication”
“There is much the community can also do to play their part in the global fight against HIV/AIDS by encouraging education at a grass roots level where all the difference can be made”
“We encourage the media to continue broadcasting the PSA’s to complement our own awareness efforts as together, united as one informed citizenry, we will prevail in the global fight against HID/AIDS” said Dr. D’Auvergne.
