The 194 Member States who participated in the sixty-ninth World Health Assembly, which governs the World Health Organization (WHO), in late May / 2016 unanimously approved the adoption of the global health sector strategies design for management HIV, viral hepatitis and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) (STIs) to 2021 year.
Urging the Associated Nations World Health Organization to approve the first of viral hepatitis strategy, the World Alliance of hepatitis predicts that more than 7 million lives can be saved if governments take measures to eliminate viral hepatitis.
The strategy includes targets aimed at expanding treatment to 80% of people living with hepatitis B or C and reduce the number of deaths in 65% to 2030. Recommended preventive measures include childhood vaccination against hepatitis B, testing of blood donations and the use of safe and clean syringes.
“The adoption of the Strategy Against Viral HepatitisWhich signals the first step in eliminating this disease, which affects 400 million people around the world, "Rachel Peck, CEO of the World Hepatitis Alliance (WHA) (World Alliance of Hepatitis in free translation), said in apress release"
"If governments remain engaged, we will witness the elimination of one of the greatest global threats to health in our lives."
"The reduction in mortality rates not only mean a reduction in personnel costs of viral hepatitis, but it also means the reduction of the financial costs of health systems, which would no longer have to deal with a significant number of people suffering from the results of viral hepatitis treatment, "he added. (Note from the Editor Soropositivo.Org: When I read this statement appears when a "new resolve to fight a disease, and frankly, I do not know for sure, and it is important that one day we knew if the" mobile that carries these resolutions " . are more interested in saving life or save "Some Money" ... I can never reach a conclusion about you, that reads: what do you think?
But there is still much to be done, given that only 36 countries had national action plans to set viral hepatitis and other 33 (the Age of Christ) had development plans of these strategies to start from February 2016According WHA.
Three designs strategies that are available online:
- The strategy design for the global health sector on HIV, 2016-2021
- The design of global health sector strategy on viral hepatitis, 2016-2021
- strategy project for the global health sector on sexually transmitted infections, 2016-2021

"This is an important milestone for three strategies are fully aligned in their eagerness to support the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which include targets to end the HIV epidemic as a threat to public health in 2030 and the fight against viral hepatitis and other communicable diseases ", according to theInternational AIDS Society News Blog.
While the member states adopted three different strategies, which aim to facilitate greater integration between these areas of health, which share the same transmission routes, many people are co-infected with even more than two.
"The links between HIV and STDs have long been recognized on these joints, especially for men and boys, and provide a platform to engage men as sexual health services recipients," according to IAS. " 'People-centered in relation to all approaches the area of these three diseases will ensure greater acceptance and accessibility, and it is imperative that the approach that ensures permanent and constant maintenance to promote and encourage health seeking behaviors in a general context and in the field of sexually transmitted diseases, which generate shyness regarding the search for treatment. "
As focus areas, strategies emphasize the strengthening of local health systems and health care workforces, integration, delivery services and tackle stigma and discrimination, controlling medications prices (especially for hepatitis C) and greater involvement of the affected populations, including men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, transsexuals and sex workers.

Editor's note: I talk to people by Whats App of all States and, in the Southeast, the state of Rio de Janeiro's champion (a mention nothing honorable) in claims regarding the dehumanization of care patients (even in "CTAs "where it is assumed (at least I assume) that the workers of these sites (I will not nomina them health professionals while I'm getting complaints, especially those of _frio_ _acolhimento_ and or _desumano_) Should receive treatment to offer hosting, pacification and tranquilization and have seen all kinds of complaints, such as doctors (sic) who do not know what is PEP (!!!), indifferent attendants and no empathic capacity to receive people naturally weakened by fear, sometimes truly terrified when these people (Humans who can not receive, under any circumstances cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment), They feel when they realize they can (and sometimes not even there the risk, but Desgovernos and "Press" do nothing, with the honorable exception of MTV, to enlighten people regarding AIDS, HIV Infection, Viral Hepatitis but promote an "OBA-OBA" -which has nothing to do with the Sargentelli- where there is real incentive to early sex (I'm not a moralist, far from it) without responsibility, care or precautions. there is a lot left to "watch the Open TV ( SIC) "because it does not offer anything that educates or manages people with notions of citizenship and self-esteem -perhaps only one inference, the plan is exactly this and I suggest, as a spark to begin fire, review and revise concessions and, in some cases, extinguish LAS- which has led girls 12 years to become "mothers" etc. Same goes, deplorable way in the North and Northeast regions.
