The article looks at how HIV/AIDS is being addressed in Colombia. In Bogotá, Colombia in 1997, it is said that several activists have organized to tackle HIV issues, one of which is the Girasol Project. The author says the country's armed conflict makes it dangerous to be involved with anything HIV related. In 2007, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria declined to renew Colombia's grants. Roberto Sicard of the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) says heterosexual transmission of HIV in the country has increased.
