Michelle Obama Talks About AIDS, Women’s Rights On Africa Trip

First Lady Michelle Obama, who is on a trip to Africa, “urged young Africans on Wednesday to fight for women’s rights and battle the stigma of AIDS, using her husband’s ‘yes, we can’ campaign slogan to motivate youth across the continent,” Reuters reports.

“You can be the generation that ends HIV/AIDS in our time, the generation that fights not just the disease, but the stigma of the disease, the generation that teaches the world that HIV is fully preventable and treatable, and should never be a source of shame,” Obama said to a gathering at Regina Mundi Church in Johannesburg, South Africa (Mason, 6/22).
