U.S. News & World Report: Sex, Sugar Daddies, and HIV in South Africa
“…This summer, just in time for bragging rights at the July International AIDS Conference in Durban, two large-scale initiatives will attempt to [prevent HIV infections among young women] in South Africa. By July, the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Johnson & Johnson, and other corporate and nonprofit partners plan to fully implement a program in South Africa called DREAMS, or Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-free, Mentored, and Safe women. … This month, the South African government hopes to build on the DREAMS program by launching a three-year initiative aimed at curbing HIV infections in young women and the men who are their primary infectors…” (Haynie, 6/13).
