How Senegal is leading the fight against AIDS in West Africa
Issued on: Modified:
Amid the ongoing international AIDS conference in Paris, we take a closer look at efforts being made to fight the disease. In its report published last week, UNAIDS revealed that the mortality rate has halved since 2005. Once described as one of the "forgotten regions" in the fight against HIV/AIDS, West Africa is now showing encouraging signs. Senegal, in particular, is now viewed as an example for prevention and treatment of this disease. FRANCE 24's Sarah Sakho reports from Dakar.
