September 25, 2012

On Monday in Maputo, Mozambique, U.S. Ambassador Douglas Griffiths signed funding agreements with 29 community-based organizations that will receive a total of $1.4 million through PEPFAR's small grants program "to strengthen health systems, boost professional training and implement income generating activities for people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS," the Mozambique News Agency/AllAfrica.com reports. "Because of your local knowledge, we can reach the most affected communities and spread messages about preventing HIV, treatment, and the available care and support," Griffiths said, according to the news service, which notes the money "from the U.S. embassy for the fight against HIV/AIDS is not new" (9/24).
