The United Nations has stated that breaking the cycle of HIV transmission is part of their 2030 Agenda.
Between 2006 and 2016, there has been a 40 percent decline in new infections. While global progress has been made, key populations such as young girls in Africa are at risk for HIV. For example, Avert.org reports that transactional sex, age-disparate sexual relationships, and child marriages make women in East and Southern Africa under 15 and up to 24 years of age vulnerable. The United Nations believes prevention is key to ending this cycle.
President of the General Assembly, Miroslav Lajčák, shared “we need to be clear: we cannot afford to slow down. HIV is, still, a huge challenge.”
In 2016, over a million people lost their lives to AIDS-related illnesses and only 53 percent had access to antiretroviral therapy. People with HIV are 20 to 30 times more likely to develop tuberculosis! Many in developing nations are without access to proper treatment and nearly all HIV-positive people that develop tuberculosis will die.
Healthcare is critical to sustainable development.
Aldelano Solar Cold Chain Solutions offers developing nations robust solar power generators, solar atmospheric water generation and solar-powered cold storage. Industrial grade, off-grid equipment can supply medical facilities, governments, and humanitarian organizations with the necessary tools to provide health care in even the most remote regions of the world.
The United Nations is only one link in the chain to end the global HIV epidemic. We hope to align with those in need for tough, long-lasting off-grid equipment that supports medical providers. We offer:
- Solar powered cold storage for medicines, vaccines, blood and medical equipment.
- Clean, fresh water generation from moisture in the air through solar power.
- Off-grid electricity through a solar power generator that can power a single home or entire village and can be adapted for any region of the world.
According to 2106 data from Avert.org, 19.4 million people in East and Southern Africa are living with HIV. East and Southern Africa is the most affected HIV region in the world.
Many of those afflicted with HIV and HIV related diseases live beyond the grid. Solar resources can help governments and humanitarian organizations not only provide stronger medical care but report and track the issue.
Aldelano Solar Cold Chain Solutions products require little to no maintenance and come ready-to-use. It is critical that medical providers in remote areas utilize equipment that has does not need frequent repair. The Aldelano Solar ColdBox, Solar WaterMaker, and Solar PowerPak/Generator offer sustainable and reliable off-grid resources.
Prevention is key for HIV and crisis management. When Aldelano Solar Cold Chain Solutions products are part of a health organizations arsenal, they have the power to take life-saving resources where electricity is unstable, clean water is scarce and cold-storage is lacking.
