July 1, 2013
Citing President Obama's trip to Africa, including a visit to South Africa, Ambassador Eric Goosby, head of the U.S. State Department's Office of Global Health Diplomacy and the U.S. global AIDS coordinator, writes in a CNN opinion piece, "[A]s President Obama makes this historic trip to Africa, we are at a point where an AIDS-free generation is within sight," noting, "With the world's largest number of people living with HIV and AIDS (5.6 million), South Africa has always been on the front lines of the epidemic." Goosby discusses the history of U.S. government HIV/AIDS efforts in South Africa, which began in 2003, as well as the successes that have been achieved in the past decade by PEPFAR and its partners, including the South African government and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.View Full Article
