Jamaica promotes well-being of women and girls
18 de diciembre de 2016, 13:09Kingston, Dec 18 (Prensa Latina) Jamaica is working to improve the health and well-being of women and girls by implementing specific social programs to tackle their most common issues, praised the U.N. Secretary on HIV/AIDS, Dr. Eward Greene.
The Jamaican authorities are pushing forward initiatives like 'He for She' that engage men in the push for improving the quality of women life in this Caribbean island.
Greene said that the U.N. is promoting campaigns to urge women to take control of their sexuality and prevent diseases like HIV/AIDS.
Recent reports of the U.N. HIV/AIDS Program show that after several years of reducing the amount of HIV/AIDS cases, the Caribbean saw an increase of 9% in new infected cases from 2010 and 2015.
In the face of increasing violence against women and girls in Jamaica, humanitarian organizations insist on the need that the media should play a greater role in the campaign against this social evil.
