African Leaders to Hold Summit on AIDS, Malaria

April 26, 2006

On May 4, African leaders will meet in Abuja, Nigeria, to evaluate the continent's fight against HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria. Africa is home to slightly more than one-tenth of the world's population, yet it suffers more than one-quarter of the world's disease burden, said Eyitayo Lambo, Nigeria's Health Minister. The summit will assess Africa's progress toward the health goals set by the leaders in 2000 and 2001 and those laid out in the UN's Millennium Development plan. On May 2-3, a meeting of experts, government ministers, and African Union representatives will precede the summit.
