Haiti - Health : More than 15,000 Haitians aged 15 to 24 living with HIV
Friday, in order to contribute to the resolution of the problem of juvenilization of AIDS (over 15,500 Haitian youth aged 15 to 24 are living with HIV, 61% are girls. - Stat 2013) and the large number of teenage mothers in Haiti the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) and UNAIDS in support of the Haitian government, has officially launched a project to mobilize youth against AIDS, sexual violence and early pregnancy (at 17, almost a teenager on 5 has already been pregnant).

Through this co-funded project by the UN Mission to the tune of 26,000 US dollars, 90 girls and boys aged 15 to 30, from 3 departments most affected by HIV / AIDS (West, Centre and South) will be followed, accompanied and encouraged to initiate public awareness campaigns through the media.

"I believe in the youth of Haiti, because you believe in the future of this beautiful country," declared Sandra Honoré, the Special Representative of the Secretary General of the United Nations "We want you as Ambassadors to address the problem of HIV juvenilization, growth of sexual violence and early pregnancy increased sharply in Haitian teenagers."

This project follows a similar project launched in 2015 in 3 departments whose implementation was a great success.
