HIV/AIDS in Ghana

One of the few blogs that I follow is written by a mom that I know who works as an adoption coordinator in Ghana. She raised a really interesting (and disturbing) issue in her latest post related to HIV Aids in Ghana. Take a look...

So much about what we have been discussing in our course is related to how health and human welfare is so dependent on the culture, traditions, and infrastructure of the country. While I can see both sides of the situation she raises; I still feel that this is yet another barrier to public health in Ghana.

1 in 4 sexually active teenagers become infected with an STD every year, in the United States alone. Now, more than ever, we need to join together to fight this growing issue. As I read through your website, it is clear that you share the same passion for STD/STI awareness. We here, at, understand the importance of STD/STI prevention and treatments. If you could, please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button, it would be much appreciated. We can not reach every teenager, but together we can try.
If you need more information please mail me with the subject line as your URL.

Thnak You,
