Description
North Star is building a network of roadside health and learning clinics (Wellness Centres) at border crossings, ports and truck stops along transport corridors in Africa. The clinics are conveniently located and open during hours when the truckers are resting for the night and therefore have time to seek health services. They help public and private stakeholders to reach critical mobile populations at the heart of major health and safety issues. An electronic health passport system, COMETS, links all of the centres so that treatment information can ‘travel’ with our clients. It also allows North Star to manage, monitor and evaluate the performance of each locally run Wellness Centre.
North Star développe un réseau de cliniques et centres de santé (centres de bien-être) au bord des routes, aux frontières, aux arrêts fréquentés par les camionneurs, dans les ports le long des corridors de transport en Afrique. Les cliniques sont situées dans des endroits propices et sont ouvertes pendant les heures de repos des camionneurs la nuit, de façon à ce qu’ils aient le temps d’accéder aux services de santé. Elles permettent aux acteurs des secteurs publics et privés d’atteindre les populations mobiles critiques qui sont au cœur des problèmes de sécurité et de santé. Un système de passeport de santé électronique, COMET, relie tous les centres de façon à ce que les informations concernant le traitement puissent voyager avec les clients. Il permet également à North Star de gérer, surveiller et évaluer l’efficacité de chaque centre de bien-être administré localement.

Community Consensus Statement on Access to HIV Treatment and its Use for Prevention

Together, we can make it happen

We can end HIV soon if people have equal access to HIV drugs as treatment and as PrEP, and have free choice over whether to take them.

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
