Abstract* last updated: 21-SEP-2004
The HIV/AID and Tuberculosis Control Project for Djibout will assist the Government in setting up and implementing a response against HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), malaria, and tuberculosis (TB), of which the latter two are important risk cofactors. There are 4 components to the project: 1) The capacity building and policy development will aim at strengthening Djibouti's capacity to cope with the spread of HIV/AIDS, and to control malaria and tuberculosis. 2) The Ministry of Health (MOH) and more broadly the health community have special responsibilities for the prevention and management of HIV/AIDS/STIs, malaria, and other opportunistic infections - including malaria, and tuberculosis. 3) As demonstrated in other countries, in order for the control of HIV/AIDS to be effective, it is necessary to have a multisectoral approach to better target priority vulnerable groups. The preparation process of the National Strategic Plan has demonstrated that the MOH could not by itself deliver all the essential prevention, and impact. 4) In order to enlist communities in controlling HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis, and to provide them with the means to mitigate the impact of these diseases, it is necessary to provide resources at the local level.
