U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit Should Address Sustainable Financing For HIV/AIDS Programs

The Hill: We can end AIDS in Africa and the world
Taufiqur Rahman, head of operations for UNITAID

“Africa leaders are convened in Washington this week to discuss Africa priorities with President Obama and U.S. institutions. U.S. support for HIV/AIDS programs will be an important topic of discussion. Africa’s economic development can accelerate if Africa can have sustainable financing for its HIV/AIDS programs and stop this epidemic. … African leaders must be prepared to discuss transition and sustainable financing for HIV/AIDS programs. A commitment to shared responsibility and national financing is what is needed from all” (8/5).
