Festus Mogae, the former president of Botswana, on Monday in Mozambique's capital of Maputo said that Africans should not give up on the fight against HIV/AIDS, adding that despite the efforts already made on the continent, much more is required, AIM/AllAfrica.com reports. Mogae said, "We must not desist. We have already done a lot, but Africans need to do a lot more to finish this pandemic." According to Mogae, one of the "factors that facilitates the spread of HIV/AIDS is that men have many partners, many girlfriends, and that's a problem." He added, "We can do a lot about this. We have to change our behavior."
