Zambia's Use of Resources to Fight HIV/AIDS Model for Other Countries, Dybul Says

October 23, 2006

Zambia has demonstrated how to use donor funding effectively for HIV prevention and treatment programs at the community and ministerial levels, and the country could serve as a model for other nations, Mark Dybul -- who serves as the U.S. global AIDS coordinator and administers the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief -- said on Friday during a visit to the country, Zambia's Daily Mail reports. "Zambia is an extraordinary example of what partnership can do. The successes that this nation has scored in care and treatment of patients is remarkable," Dybul said of the partnerships between the Ministry of Health and communities aimed at preventing the spread and alleviating the impact of HIV. During his trip, Dybul also met with people living with HIV/AIDS at the Kanyama Clinic in the capital, Lusaka, which is providing antiretroviral drugs to 3,400 people and long-term care to 6,000 adults and children. According to the Daily Mail, Dybul said PEPFAR has spent $570 million on HIV/AIDS programs in Zambia (Chileshe, Daily Mail, 10/21).
