UNICEF to Spend $9 Million to Fight AIDS in Zambia

October 30, 2002

UNICEF announced on Tuesday it would spend $9 million on AIDS programs in Zambia, where it said the pandemic was placing a heavy burden on the country's children. "HIV/AIDS is devastating and its impact is adverse on children. HIV/AIDS is totally changing the lives of many children in Zambia... it eclipses everything," Stella Goings, UNICEF's Zambian representative emphasized. Goings said UNICEF funds would be spent over five years, with some programs focusing on prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission.
