Secretary General Ban Ki-moon warns that instead of eradication, the AIDS epidemic could be prolonged indefinitely if urgent action is not implemented within the next five years. The plan will be discussed during a high level meeting at the U.N. headquarters in New York next month.“The AIDS response has delivered more than results,” Ban said. “It has delivered the aspiration and the practical foundation to end the epidemic by 2030. But if we accept the status quo unchanged, the epidemic will rebound in several low- and middle-income countries.“Our tremendous investment, and the world’s most inspiring movement for the right to health, will have been in vain.”Ban made his comments in a report, On the Fast-Track to end the AIDS epidemic, which has been produced for the High Level Meeting on Ending AIDS, which will take place between June 8-10 at the U.N.’s General Assembly building in New York.Ban said the progress is “inspiring,” and described it as a “major global victory” reaching 15 million people with antiretroviral therapy nine months before a December 2015 U.N.-set deadline.Ban’s report underlines the critical role civil society has played in securing many of the gains made and the leadership provided by people living with HIV. It says that “community efforts have been key to removing many of the obstacles faced in scaling up the AIDS response, including reaching people at risk of HIV infection with HIV services, helping people to adhere to treatment and reinforcing other essential health services.”The United Society’s program adviser, Evie Vernon, describes the U.N. plan to eradicate AIDS as “good news indeed.”She said: “Many have prayed in words and in action for just this possibility and are poised to help to ensure it comes to pass.”A major step towards the 2030 eradication target comes in 2020, when the U.N. hope there will be fewer than 500,000 people newly infected with HIV; and fewer than 500,000 people dying from AIDS-related causes.“These goals are really ambitious as UNAIDS estimates 2014 figures for people living with HIV at 36.9 million and newly infected people at 2 million,” Evie Vernon said. “Nevertheless, it is possible if governments and civil society organizations work together. . .“Faith-based organizations have always played a key role in the response to HIV and AIDS. This includes the United society; we continue to support programs to combat the impact of HIV and AIDS run by Anglican Churches around the world.”In Tanzania, the United Society supports a range of health programs, including providing support for the development of the Anglican Church of Tanzania’s strategic health plan and training for health coordinators. And in the Chamwino district of the Dodoma region, the United Society is helping the Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV initiative.This involves providing antiretroviral drugs to women with HIV during pregnancy, labor and breastfeeding; providing HIV care and treatment for women and their children; the prevention of HIV among women of reproductive age; and providing counseling and contraceptives for women living with HIV.In Zimbabwe, where nearly 1.2 million adults are living with HIV, the United Society is working to remove the stigma surrounding the disease. “lives are being lost because people are reluctant to ask questions or come forward for testing and treatment,” the United Society says on its website.“HIV also creates poverty. As lives are lost, households lose income. Sometimes children are sent out to work to make ends meet, but they miss out on school and the chance of an education and better-paid employment in the future. And so the cycle of poverty continues.”Research in the country shows that only 26 percent of people with HIV felt comfortable enough to share their HIV status with their church leader; and that thousands of children are being expelled or suspended from school because their parents are HIV-positive.Young people, aged between 15 and 19, were found to be particularly sensitive to stigma. Only three percent of those approached were willing to take part in a survey.“Stigma remains a major barrier for people living with HIV in Zimbabwe,” Mucha Mukamuri, the executive director of the Zimbabwe National Network of People (ZNNP) Living with HIV, a United Society partner in the country, said. “We have been able to share with politicians empirical evidence of the stigma, and this is galvanizing a political will to tackle the problem.“We want to enable understanding among faith communities. We want churches to create an environment in which people can openly disclose their status,” he said.The research being conducted by the United Society and ZNNP is being used to break down HIV stigma in the church and “helping people to talk more openly about God’s care for people with HIV,” the United Society said.

“He’s a very dangerous front player that makes the team even stronger,” Koeman said. “He will give us very good competition between the strikers, that will be important for next season. “If Jay can have a good pre-season, we have a new player in our team and that is fantastic news. “He was part of the sessions this week. We are waiting for confirmation about an Under-21 game against Manchester city at home next Tuesday. “He will be part of that, maybe in the second half, and then after that there is a possibility to take Jay with the squad to the Man City game. “It will be nice for everybody because that will mean he is back but it is too early to make that kind of decision, we have to wait.” Rodriguez capped his return to action by signing a four-year contract on Tuesday and the club are increasingly optimistic Nathaniel Clyne will soon follow suit. Clyne, who has been linked with a summer move to Manchester United, recently changed his agent and Southampton chief executive Les Reed said on Monday that negotiations had since progressed. Press Association Southampton manager Ronald Koeman believes Jay Rodriguez’s long-awaited return from injury will be like having a new player at the club next season. Rodriguez has not played since rupturing his anterior cruciate knee ligament against Manchester City in April 2014 but the 25-year-old is back in training and on course to play against Manuel Pellegrini’s side on the final day of the campaign. Saturday’s match at home to Aston Villa is likely to come too soon for the striker but Saints hope he can feature in an Under-21 fixture, also against Manchester City, next week. “As Les already mentioned, the feeling is good that we can keep Clyney in the club,” Koeman said. “But it is still left to do the signature of the player and we hope that will be next week. “The feeling is very positive but the reason we have to wait a little more time is because he changed his agent.” Southampton host Aston Villa this weekend, hoping to strengthen their bid for Europa League football next season. They are currently seventh in the table, which will be enough to qualify if Arsenal win the FA Cup, but are under pressure from Swansea, who now sit only a point behind after beating the Gunners on Monday. “To finish in sixth I think we need at least four points from the last two games,” Koeman said. “It was a great result for Swansea (against Arsenal), they are having a fantastic season like we are. “It means there is maybe even more pressure for everyone on Saturdays’ game but it is a home game and we need a win. “It’s all about us, not about Swansea, if we win they can’t pass us in the table. It’s up to us.” Saints midfielder James Ward-Prowse is available again after serving a one-match ban but Morgan Schneiderlin (knee) and Dusan Tadic (groin) are still injured.
Low’s side stunned by Mexico as World Cup defence starts with defeatMoscow, June 17: Mexico created the first upset of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, overcoming defending champions Germany 1-0 in a frenetic Group F game at the Luzhniki Stadium here on Sunday.Forward Hirving Lozano’s 35th-minute goal proved to make the difference in a match played at a very high tempo as four-time champions Germany began their title defence on a disastrous note.The game opened up at a breathtaking pace, with both Germany and Mexico playing an open game, going on an all-out attack. German striker Timo Werner had the first chance of the match but his drive from a tight angle from the right went wide of the left post.Ranked 14 places below than the world No.1 Germany, Mexico took the European powerhouse head on, playing a quick counter-attacking game.Germany captain and goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was called into action to block a long-range effort from midfielder Hector Herrera in the ninth minute and five minutes later, forced to keep away a header from Mexican centre-back Hector Moreno off a corner in the 14th minute.Germany responded through long-range efforts from Toni Kroos and Werner around 20-minute mark.Mexico continued to threaten Neuer’s goal as Miguel Layun fired one over the cross-bar in the 25th minute. The Porto midfielder tested Neuer again but the Bayern Munich captain blocked a shot coming at his chest height.The Latin Americans were rewarded with the 1-0 lead when a German attack broke down, leading to a quick counter-attack spearheaded by Javier Hernandez. Just over the halfway line, the West Ham United striker spotted Lozano at the left between opponent central defenders Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng. PSV Eindhoven forward Lozano raced into the box before employing a right footed drive which beat Neuer at the bottom left corner.Germany were quick to respond, with a 30-yard free-kick from Kroos greeting Guillermo Ochoa’s gloves before hitting the cross-bar in the 38th minute.Mexico could have ended the first half with a 2-0 lead had Carlos Vela’s left-footed shot from the centre of the box not gone wide of the left post.In the second half, Germany showed their intent to push for an equaliser but had to remain alert to avoid any counter-attack.However, left-back Marvin Plattenhardt was at fault when he moved ahead and Javier once again raced ahead for a counter-attack. With Boateng closing down on him, he attempted a poor side-pass to Vela, in a big relief to the Europeans.After this chance, Mexico were quick to put in defender Edson Alvarez, substituting Vela.Seeing Mexico intent on going for defensive depth, Germany decided to shift gear, replacing midfielder Sami Khedira with creative forward Marco Reus in the 59th minute.Later, Germany pinned Mexico inside their box, creating one chance after another. Joshua Kimmich, and Werner were guilty of heading corners off target, while Julian Draxler saw a curling attempt at goal deflected behind for a corner.Later, Mexico sought another defensive cover, replacing midfielder and captain Andres Guardado with Rafael Marquez, while forward Raul Jimenez replaced Lozano.Mexico waited for their counter-attack and twice Layun had the opportunity to give his side a cushion goal. But his shots were not on target, even failing to test Neuer in the 80th minute mark.With times running out, a desperate Germany coach Joachim Loew decided to substitute left-back Plattenhardt with striker Mario Gomez, moving the team’s formation to a 3-2-1-4. Werner made way for Julian Brandt.However, Mexico, with determination, defended their slender one-goal lead to secure a crucial win. IANS
