In Los Angeles, there were over 100.”He brought out copies of his book for signing and purchasing and after the lecture guests who had signed up for the event were able to partake in a wine tasting.“I’m looking forward to reading Mr. Byles’ book,” said Emily Stevenson, holding an autographed copy. Stevenson said the lecture was very interesting and she did not know that prohibition had closed down most wineries in Los Angeles.For those who missed the event, Byles’ book is available for purchase from Amazon.

For our country, we give everything we have. As soon as you wear the jersey, we do everything for each other.”He scored the go-ahead goal after the first video review-created penalty kick in a World Cup final. During a delay of about four minutes that might have unnerved less-composed players. Griezmann told himself to pretend it was a league match.“Carry on and do the same thing as I normally do,” he remembered thinking.At 27, he in his prime but in the penumbra of Spanish soccer at Atletico Madrid, toiling in a league that Barcelona and Real Madrid dominate. He led the 2016 European Championship with six goals and tied for second with four at the World Cup, three on penalty kicks, earning the Bronze Ball as third-best player behind Croatia midfielder Luka Modric and Belgium forward Eden Hazard.Griezmann kissed the trophy, knowing his generation will be revered in the same way Zidane, Petit, Thierry Henry, Lilian Thuram and Fabien Barthez remain renowned from Calais to Cannes.

SA steps up HIV/Aids treatment

first_imgIt attributed this achievement to successful voluntary counselling and testing, prevention of mother-to-child transmission services, which were provided in more than 95% of health facilities, the distribution of condoms, and the introduction of a new dual-therapy policy in February 2008. Source: BuaNews “Ensuring equitable access will be one of our primary concerns and UNAids will continue to act as a voice for the voiceless, ensuring that marginalized groups and people most vulnerable to HIV infection have access to the services that are so vital to their wellbeing and to that of their families and communities,” Sidibe said. However, major challenges remain around limited implementation capacity to fully put the plan into operation. This report supports the recent study by the Human Science Research Council, which revealed that the response to the country’s HIV/Aids epidemic by the government and various stakeholders was starting to show some positive results. According to the government’s Development Indicators, the 2007 antenatal care survey reflected a one percent reduction in overall HIV prevalence between 2006 and 2007, and a two percent reduction between 2005 and 2007. “South Africa has recognised skilled human resource capacity as a major impediment towards rapid scale-up of intervention programmes, particularly in the provinces,” the report said. “This is a major challenge, since human resource capacity, particularly in specialised fields of the health sector, cannot be developed overnight.” 5 October 2009 Universal access to treatment Spending on Aids programmes The report, titled “Towards universal access: Scaling up priority HIV/Aids interventions in the health sector”, was released last week by the World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef) and Joint UN Programme on HIV/Aids (UNAids). UNAids executive director Michel Sidibe agreed, saying all indications were that the number of people needing treatment would rise dramatically over the next few years. National HIV prevalence surveycenter_img According to the National HIV Prevalence, Incidence and Communication Survey, conducted in 2008, South Africa’s HIV/Aids epidemic has stabilised and there are signs of declining prevalence among children and teenagers. WHO director general Margaret Chan said while the world was making tremendous progress in the HIV/Aids response, governments across the world should not rest on their laurels, with at least five-million people living with HIV still not having access to life-prolonging treatment and care. One of the most notable achievements, according to the report, is that the number of patients undergoing antiretroviral treatment almost doubled, from 458 951 to 700 500, between 2007 and 2008. It further noted that prevention of mother-to-child transmission treatment was now available to over 50% of those in need. “Prevention services fail to reach many in need. Governments and international partners must accelerate their efforts to achieve universal access to treatment,” Chan said. “The setting of targets has helped to galvanise the different stakeholders and foster a consultative participatory process, such as target setting, drafting and costing, resulting in the ownership of [the plan].” Other challenges include the low uptake of prevention and weak service delivery structures, especially at lower levels. South Africa’s HIV/Aids treatment programmes are reaching an increasing number of those in need, according to a new international report, with the number of patients on antiretroviral treatment almost doubling between 2007 and 2008. It shows that the HIV prevalence has levelled off at 10.9% in the age group two and older. “While it is too early to assess the true impact of scale-up, programme reports already show signs of progress, with one of the largest treatment coverage programmes in the world now reaching half-a-million people,” the report said. The report found that the National Strategic Plan for 2007-2011 was one of the largest treatment coverage programmes in the world, with South Africa ranked second in the world in terms of domestic spending on Aids programmes.last_img read more
