On Monday 23 May and Friday 27 May, the Student HIV AIDS Resistance Campaign (SHARC) Society of Rhodes University, is hosting an HIV/AIDS test drive, offering free tests to all voluntary participants. And seeing as combating AIDS/HIV is one of the Millennium Development Goals, I thought it would be most appropriate to discuss this topic.
To re-cap this is the outline of the sixth MDG goal:
Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases
Target 6A: Have halted by 2015 and begun to reverse the spread of HIV/AIDS
Target 6B: Achieve, by 2010, universal access to treatment for HIV/AIDS for all those who need it
Target 6C: Have halted by 2015 and begun to reverse the incidence of malaria and other major diseases
