    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The Ombudsman of Costa Rica has established the prevention and treatment of HIV a priority, as part of the World Day to Combat AIDS, which will to be held next Sunday.

    In a statement, the Ombudsman stated that the matter should be treated as “a public health priority, a commitment to establishing public policies on human rights and social and cultural challenges for people to change their attitude against this epidemic.”

    “It is essential to achieve the repositioning and revitalization of the issue of HIV and AIDS on the agenda of national public institutions, so that the State increases efforts to devote more resources to HIV prevention and to articulate a response,” he said.

    According to official data, in Costa Rica, a country of 4.7 million inhabitants, about 9,800 are infected with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), half of which are people between 15 and 34 years old.

    The data also indicates that 34.2% of those infected in Costa Rica are between 35 and 50 years, while 12.2% are between 51 and 75. (EFE)
