Die Regierung Thailands (also eines Landes, das selbst massiv mit AIDS und anderen Problemen zu kämpfen hat) hat angekündigt, 7 afrikanischen Ländern insgesamt 50.000 Kondome zu spenden:
In a move consistent with their own moderate success at fighting HIV/AIDS with condoms, the Thai government announced they were donating 50,000 condoms to seven African countries as part of their “forward engagement” program to help with the UN effort to fight HIV/Aids in Africa.
The condoms will be provided by Thailand’s foreign and health ministries and shipped by the United Nations Development Programme to Burkina Faso, Ghana, Kenya, Gabon, Mali, Nigeria and Uganda.
Sub-Saharan Africa is the most heavily infected area in the world. An estimated 25.8 million people had been infected by HIV at the end of 2005 and approximately 3.1 million new infections occurred during last year.
