AIDS Aid For Mexico

October 17, 2006

The U.S. Embassy in Mexico has announced a $1.2 million medical assistance package to combat HIV and tuberculosis. The money will fund mobile screening and diagnosis for high-risk Mexicans in Tijuana; develop a U.S.-Mexican partnership for prevention of the two diseases; increase preventive measures among male migrant populations in 10 areas; and promote HIV and TB awareness. "Health is a common concern and a shared responsibility," said U.S. Ambassador Antonio O. Garza Jr. "Through bilateral cooperation and active participation of the civil society in both our countries, we really can win the fight against infectious diseases."
