Caritas and faith-based organisations (FBOs), launched a roadmap this week detailing what needs to be done by 2020 to prevent more children dying from AIDS-related illnesses.
Massive progress has been made in relation to diagnosis and treatment of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, since the early 1980s. In 2015, UNAIDS announced we reached the milestone of getting 15 million people on anti-retroviral treatment.
Caritas has invited faith-based groups to Rome to lay the groundwork for a roadmap for their greater engagement in diagnosing and treating children living with HIV.
The decision to impose tighter border restrictions is effectively converting Greece into a refugee camp. Caritas is providing aid, but says EU policies must change.
More than 930,000 refugees arrived in Greece in the past 12 months. Last year several thousand people were crossing the border at Idomeni every day but now there are tight restrictions.
