Mozambican Leader Tells Japan of AIDS Crisis in His Country

January 25, 2007

At a press conference in Tokyo on Monday, Mozambican President Armando Guebuza said talking openly about AIDS has helped his country slow its spread. "In our African tradition, we do not discriminate against people," Guebuza said. "But when the information about the disease came to us, it came together with the idea of stigma. In our tradition if somebody is old or sick, he deserves equal treatment, humane treatment. So we have to do away with this idea of stigma and recapture our values to deal with this issue." Guebuza visited Japan to discuss development aid and further economic cooperation between the two nations.
