Jacob Zuma, President of South Africa

The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV / AIDS (UNAIDS) said the appeal of the South African President, Jacob Zuma, for the country to create local structure to produce antiretroviral drugs to treat the virus.

The president said, Monday (28), that the extent of the epidemic and the reduction of donor funds hamper containment actions infection. The South African leader also asked that more be produced male and female condoms on the continent.

The UNAIDS points halving the number of new HIV infections in 13 countries on the continent. In sub-Saharan Africa, the number of children living with the virus fell 24% between 2009 and 2011.

In the event called "Campaign for Accelerated Reduction of Maternal and Child Mortality in Africa," Zuma said four in 10 women and children in South Africa died due to HIV last year.

According to Zuma, the situation should be taken as an argument for reducing maternal and child mortality significantly in the country.

The call for dozens of participants of the meeting was in order to ensure the maintenance of earnings and expand access to products such as condoms and antiretroviral drugs.

Even with the gains in Africa to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon said there were concerns with the current challenges.

At the African Union Summit, Ban Ki-moon said he was concerned about the hundreds of millions of Africans living in poverty, and called for more efforts on the eve of the deadline for fulfilling the overall, in 2015.
