As millions of people around the globe marked the 20th World Aids Day on Saturday, weighing each country’s effort in the fight against such pandemic should be the overall agenda.
To some, this may be the only day of the year in which they think about Aids, whilefor many, however, the disease is part of their daily life.
As developed countries continue to provide global help to bring down the HIV/Aids prevalence rate, countries like Rwanda have also taken vital steps, which merit for a global weigh.
Recently the country through her Treatment and Research Aids Centre (TRAC) prastatal scooped a top African ICT Achievers Award for use of ICT in HIV/Aids control.
This is the second honour this year after the Technology in Government in Africa (TIGA) award was offered by UNECA.
TRAC’s online means to control HIV/Aids is a technological solution that delivers real-time data collection from health professionals in the field, rapid information sharing, and continuous monitoring and analysis of the disease’s programme performance.
The information system allows people involved in anti-retroviral treatment programmes to electronically submit reports and have timely access to vital information.
But this does not rule out the presence of HIV/Aids either in Rwanda or global society, much as the UNAIDS recent report slashed down its estimated cases worldwide.
The report message contains breathtaking feat in anti HIV/Aids battle, but how to match it with the real human action against this pandemic still remains a challenge.
Several members of global society are still entangled by dreadful concerns that escalate the HIV/Aids prevalence.
Such a situation alerts itself for global recognition of possible national or regional action adapted by any country or society to rescue their suffering members.
As this year’s theme of World Aids Day focuses on ‘leadership effort’, every concerned body or nation ought to subscribe to the global fight of this unrelenting threat to human lives.
