How can we help people realize how HIV/AIDS impacts children in developing nations?

Prss. maddie
Line up a bunch of shoes representing every child who died of aids or is dying of it in third world countries, all across the country. Then place a paragraph about each child on it. people will see them as children not statistics. I hope that sometime in the future no child will die of AIDS.

ZER0 C00L ••AM••VT••
By clearing their heads of all the religious nonsense that blinds them from recognizing that proper birth control would have prevented most of them from being born with it in the first place.

show to them people who have died from aids and bring others who have infected to talk in public

You just did! Keep up the good work!

A presentation telling them that can and eventually die if they really care about their life they'll get tested and so will there partners

let them learn by example and die off...

i dont know.. i think more information about the problem...

A way we can show them is by showing them things that occur here and compare them with what is happening out in other nations. Show people the stories of children who have to live with the disease and how it effects them. I think that it would help if went to other countries and saw the children, but since they can't, you have to get people as close as possible. A way to do that would be to make a series of documentaries showing children in different countries. Making documentaries might be the closest people get to see what is really happening in the world.

I would say, that although there's been a plethora of media attention on the plight of HIV/Aids, it's been as detrimental, as it is helpful. We're bombarded, daily, with negative news on a global scale and that only serves to make many ppl want to pull in the rug and shut the door....

People DO realize the impact these diseases have on not only children, but on lives. If you really want to have any sort of help (I"m assuming you want help, not just realization), then you've got to put it in our own backyard and give some solutions as to what the ordinary person can do. Otherwise, it's just another blog, just another blip on the screen of life.

And if you want to get down to the bottom line, we're all sad about bad news, but we've got our own struggles right here, that have no solution. Some of us have no health care, some of us wonder where are meals are going to come from, when that medical bill shows up. Some of us struggle to pay our heating costs. It's just a fact. If you lived in a average or poor neighborhood, you'd know that while we can be sympathetic, it sure doesn't pay the bills and sure doesn't keep you warm. That's the bottom line.

I think we need to concentrate on our own people cause there is so much suffering here.

i think we need to educate the kids,starrting young and let that be something that they learn in school. they get it implanted in their head that this is a disease that has no cure and it can kill you, and it has killed many like you. maybe if we show them the real pictures and stop trying to sugar coat everything they will get the message that this is a fatal disease.

If the United States is so concerned about the AIDS problem in Africa, why don't they sterilize those people so they will stop spreading AIDS/HIV, and any other diseases they have? People like Oprah Winfrey donate money for medical supplies and doctors. Why not have a team of doctors go to South African countries and tie some tubes, so those people can't over populate and spread more disease.

hot choclate
we can only start to realize the effect aids has on other people as well as children once we start to realize the effect it has on people here at home.some people still dont realize it is a epidemic.every one thinks it cant happen to them.

Education. We must open peoples eyes to the terrible humanitarian crisis that exists in developing countries. Sadly millions of children are homeless and no longer have their parents so they live in orphanages. We need to put the voice out and loud and talk about how our fellow brothers and sisters need our help. I don't think it should be government mandated but I am glad governments do divy the money out. Some people are very selfish and greedy on both sides of the aisle, The giver and the receiver. If there is a good way that anyone knows about to get needed money, supplies, food, and other items needed for the developing countries; let everyone you can know about it. Do your part and have a heart!

Remember Live Aid in 1985? Society already knows.

The grown ups need to be the responsible ones if they can't support kids than they need to stop having them and stop making the world suffer for what these immature people are doing. I say neuter them.

find a good charity good luck be careful some are frauds

I just took part in program called "Blood;water mission" our youth group alone made $6000 in offerings to build two wells in Uganda, Africa. You just have to let people know that even with a little bit of help, they can really make a difference.

Someday Soon
Honestly, birth control should be the focus in developing nations. Until those people are taught how to bring themselves up out of poverty, they should not keep bringing more babies into the world for them to starve or die from horrible diseases such as AIDS. Personally, I think there should be an exchange program: food and or medication/treatment for women in exchange for taking a depo provera shot or something similar. Yes, it's a bit drastic. But something drastic needs to happen. This suffering has gone on and on for years and being "politically correct" just doesn't seem to get results. Only when they see that they must take responsibility and that there will not always be someone running to them with food and medication will they finally take part in their own futures.

pray for the people in the world who have HIV/AIDS.
find a good charity that supports finding a cure for aids.
write to your congressmen/women and tell them of your concern.

If the people who live in these coutries and see it every day are too stupid to realize it, how can we make them from thousands of miles away. Maybe coutries like Africa should be forced by the rest of the world to modernize and catch up with the rest of humanity. These coutries don't want to develop. They just want everyone else to give more and more to them without doing anything on their own. If they would try to help themselves, maybe more people would try to help them.

There will always be selfish people that just don't care. The best thing individuals can do is find a respectable charity that helps children that are orphaned or infected with HIV/AIDS and give what you can to help them.

Sometimes you can do things like start web sites or fund raisers and help to inform people of issues that are of importance to you. The world definitely needs more people that care. Thank you!

What gives?

We've watched the news. We see the pictures and commercials. --But still no real help.

It's time that we actually AID the AIDS problem.

How?-- Stop Insurgency. Stop Bad Governance. Stop Governmental Corruption. Gain TRUST among potential donors to the point that they may be confident that their donations are ending up in the RIGHT hands.

It is truly a paradox to see how so many benevolent organizations have been created just for AIDS Awareness/Prevention, etc. ---and YET--it seems that no comparative or truly in-depth progress has been made.

Northwest Womps
It depends on what people you are talking about. If you are
talking about Americans, the issue is already out there in
front of the people. We just need to keep it out there...not
overdoing it mind you. People get burnt out.

If you're talking about the developing nations, we can educate
the leaders there...but only they can get the message to the people. We have tried and tried to get through to the people,
but they're not going to listen to anyone but one of their own.
And I can understand that.

Until the leaders realize that their country is self-destructing
from within, and until they are willing to take up the fight against
it by getting through to the people, I don't think any great headway can be made.

Diseases impacts everyone world wide, some more than others , especially in developing countries where conditions of famine and constant war is ongoing. Nature is doing her job and wealthy countries are trying to be helpful to the poorer countries but the leaders in those poor countries aren't doing their job ! That is where the problem has been for the past 50 years !!!!!! Get rid of dictators one at a time ! & get rid of uneducated religious fanatics who still believe backwards mumbo-jumbo . This is not just a problem in Africa, for Asia and India are also dealing with deadly issues as well ! God bless the beasts & the children

The way forward is twofold:
Firstly new HIV infections must be prevented so that children do not lose their parents, and secondly care must be provided for those children who are already orphaned. The rest of this page is devoted to issues around the care of AIDS orphans in Africa, but it is also important that HIV prevention is not forgotten. The situation of AIDS orphans is ultimately generated by adult deaths; until this problem is addressed the orphan crisis will continue.

Support for carers
In the early days of the AIDS orphan crisis, there was a rush by well meaning non-governmental organisations to build orphanages. Given the scale of the problem, though, this response was unsustainable, as the cost of maintaining a child in such an institution is much greater than other forms of care. Most people now believe that orphans should be cared for in family units through extended family networks, foster families and adoption, and that siblings should not be separated. Studies in Sub-Saharan Africa have repeatedly demonstrated that growing up in a family environment is more beneficial to a child than institutional care, which should be considered a temporary option or a last resort.

Ultimately, though, the extended family can only serve as part of the solution to mass orphanhood if adequately supported by the state and the community, as well as other sectors of society.

The community needs to be supportive of children when they are orphaned, making sure that they are accepted and have access to essential services, such as health care and education. This means improving existing services and reducing the stigma surrounding children affected by AIDS so that they do not face discrimination when trying to access these services.

Keeping children in school
Schools can play a crucial role in improving the prospects of AIDS orphans and securing their future. A good school education can give children a higher self-esteem, better job prospects and economic independence. As well as lifting children out of poverty, such an education can also give children a better understanding of HIV and AIDS, decreasing the risk that they will become infected. Schools can also offer benefits to AIDS orphans outside of education, such as emotional support and care.

Unfortunately orphans may be the first to be denied education when extended families cannot afford to educate all the children of the household.

See our HIV, AIDS and Schools page for more about the ways that schools can provide support to children affected by HIV.

Empowerment for children
If AIDS orphans are as active members of the community rather than just victims, their lives can be given purpose and dignity. Many children already function as heads of households and as caregivers. They are a vital part of the solution and should be supported in planning and carrying out efforts to lessen the impact of AIDS in their families and communities.

Protection for the legal & human rights of orphans
Much can be done to ensure the legal and human rights of AIDS orphans. Many communities are now writing wills to protect the inheritance rights of children and to prevent land and property grabbing, where adults attempt to rob orphans of their property once they have no parents to protect their rights.
Children orphaned due to AIDS may face exploitation in other areas of their lives as well. For instance, recent evidence suggests that there is a relationship between AIDS orphans in Sub-Saharan Africa and increased child-labour.

Meeting emotional needs
The physical needs of orphans, such as nutrition and health care, can often appear to be the most urgent. But the emotional needs of children who have lost a parent should not be forgotten. Having a parent become sick and die is clearly a major trauma for any child, and may affect them for the rest of their life.

This will have to be collective community effort. We could employ the help of church, community civic leagues and maybe in upper education levels, such as: high school and college level.

I would also like to address the issues within our own country. This is a vast epidemic right here in the United States. It great to help others, but we must help combat our own. It is out of control and our babies are suffering!
