Abstract:

The Department of Defense HIVAIDS Prevention Program DHAPP is pleased to present the fiscal year 2005 annual country reports. During the fiscal year, DoD resources provided HIVAIDS prevention, care, and treatment services to militaries in Africa and worldwide. Now providing HIVAIDS prevention assistance to troops in 71 countries, the efforts of DHAPP staff, and our US government and international colleagues, have the potential to affect over 6,815,200 military members around the world. During FY05, 337,733 troops and family members were reached with prevention messages and 5166 military members were trained to provide prevention messages to peers. Military HIV programs around the globe supported 258 Counseling and Testing Centers, at which 64,157 troops were tested for HIV and received their results. Five thousand four hundred and seven uniformed personnel were provided with HIV-related palliative care and 906 military health providers were trained in the provision of that care. Three hundred five uniformed health providers were trained in antiretroviral therapy techniques, 26 laboratories were equipped and now perform HIV and or CD4 testing, and 128 laboratory technicians were trained to conduct those tests. Our program has touched individual lives as well.
