UN Sees Prevention as Main Weapon Against HIV/AIDS

September 1, 2011

Prevention must remain chief among all approaches to fighting HIV/AIDS, the executive director of UNAIDS said Wednesday in Mozambique. Michel Sidibe arrived Monday in Maputo, where he attended a Mozambican Council session on the pandemic and plans to take part Friday in the launch of a new UN HIV/AIDS prevention campaign. Sidibe said at least 33 African countries have cut their number of new HIV infections, and "Mozambique can also achieve this goal."
