28 MAR, 2019. Elenice Natal de Lima SSL, Margaret Hosty SSL and SSL Associate, Suely Marinho, took part in a special HIV/AIDS conference at AAVE headquarters in the city of Goiânia, Brazil, last month. The main objective of the conference was to formulate proposals which would contribute to the improvement of the National Health System.
The conference was organized by the AAVE Group, and gave HIV positive people, health workers, hospital/clinic directors, and others including the Sisters of St Louis, an opportunity to discuss the real possibilities of improving the health system in the city of Goiânia, especially in relation to HIV/AIDS.
The conference took place at a particularly difficult time in the political life of Brazil, as recession and unemployment are likely to dramatically aggravate the health situation of the most vulnerable sectors of our population.
