Less attention to AIDS / HIV due to corona crisis

WILLEMSTAD - Cura +, the foundation that supports people with HIV / AIDS, desperately needs financial support. The foundation does not receive a subsidy. Interim Health Minister Zita Jesus-Leito confirms the request, but says at the same time that the financial situation is very difficult due to the corona crisis.

Due to the corona crisis, the attention to prevent the spread of AIDS / HIV has weakened, says Cura + chairman Dudley Ferdinandus. Recent figures on the number of AIDS / HIV cases are also lacking.

The Department of Epidemiology normally keeps track of the number of cases. According to the latest figures from 2018, there are 2,100 registered cases of AIDS / HIV in Curaçao.
