NAPWA as a resource

The National Association of People Living With HIV/AIDS or NAPWA website is an excellent resource for Australians living and thriving with HIV/AIDS.

Their excellent guide to getting the best treatment and care for HIV/AIDS can be found here: http://napwa.org.au/files/checklistguide_0.pdf

Australians already have the infrastructure and resources  required to provide children with HIV who are adopted internationally the care they need to thrive as productive members of society. It makes little sense for policy to discriminate against orphans with HIV/AIDS as potential adopted children of willing and able Australian parents. Especially when those orphans represent some of the most needy around the world, and the numbers of inter-country adoptions here is so low.

If Australia is allows for inter-country adoptions why not allow interested parties the option of adopting children with HIV/AIDS? Isn’t the point of inter-country adoption to provide homes for those most desperate of orphans for which no other solution can be provided?
