Public Private Partnerships Can Help Create AIDS-Free Generation
Huffington Post: An AIDS-Free Generation

The Pact-Chevron partnership and PROMOT project demonstrates one way we can accelerate the solution. The partnership contributes to the elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV by supporting community-based organizations in implementing prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) services in Bayelsa state. … Chevron is helping to expand PROMOT throughout all of Bayelsa with an additional $1.7 million with commitment. This additional commitment raises the company’s five-year investment for the PROMOT Project to $5.3 million…” (4/1).
