Humana: Total Control of the Epidemic
'Only people can liberate themselves from the AIDS epidemic'. These are the motivating words behind the Total Control of the Epidemic (TCE) program, which was created by the International Humana People to People Movement. Driven by a grassroots door-to-door approach, TCE has been completed in 24 areas with 2,340,000 inhabitants and at present is operating in 62 areas with 6,170,000 inhabitants in Africa, 2 areas with 200,000 inhabitants in India and 3 areas with 300,000 inhabitants in China. Created by Humana People to People, TCE provides communities with HIV risk assessments and prevention education. Johnson & Johnson currently supports the TCE areas of Main Reef and Sekhukhune in South Africa, reaching up to 400,000 people. In partnership with Irish Aid, it also supports the TCE in Narela, Baddi in India, covering an additional 200,000 people. The projects supported by the company provide one-on-one counseling sessions, briefings for pregnant women about preventing transmission of disease to their newborns and large-scale distribution of condoms.
