"'I'm a Health Worker' - Abduaraman Gidi" made by IntraHealth International.
During the 29th African Union Summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, heads of state endorsed two new initiatives to end AIDS by 2030. The first is the community health workers initiative which aims to train and deploy 2 million CHWs to work towards increasing the number of people who know their HIV status, who have access to treatment, and who are on treatment with suppressed viral loads. The initiative is based on substantial evidence that CHWs provide quality care and reduce costs for health delivery. The second initiative is the western and central Africa catch-up plan, which aims to accelerate large-scale programs for HIV testing, prevention, and treatment.
