HIV/AIDS in Latin American countries

the challenges ahead


Description

Most Latin American countries have not faced a full-scale AIDS epidemic as yet, compared to parts of Africa and the Caribbean. However, a number of recent trends suggest this situation could change unless appropriate prevention measures are adopted to address the problem. Although many countries in the region have developed new structures and the groundwork needed for community responses, many challenges still remain. This publication considers the extent and trends of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the region and evaluates current national surveillance capacities for 17 countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Venezuela and Uruguay.
