U.S. working with Namibia on AIDS response
Published on December 5, 2012 at 4:53 AM
U.S. Ambassador to Namibia Wanda Nesbitt writes in the State Department's "DipNote" blog, "Here in Namibia, the United States, through the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), is working closely with the people and Government of Namibia to prevent new HIV infections, provide lifesaving HIV treatment to those who need it, and help put an end to AIDS in the country." She discusses the recently released Blueprint for an AIDS-free Generation, progress in Namibia's AIDS response, and the transition period in which Namibia will take full responsibility for its HIV program. "We are proud to work with the government and people of Namibia to do our part toward achieving the goal of creating an AIDS-free generation. By investing smarter and working together, we will win this fight," she writes (12/3).
