Zambia Calls for Accelerated Efforts in HIV/AIDS Fight

June 11, 2009

Despite an increase in the number of people presenting for HIV testing and counseling, Zambia must work harder to fight AIDS, the minister of health said Friday at a meeting of senior cabinet officials. Kapembwa Simbao said condom use remains low, at 40 percent, as does the level of knowledge about HIV among youths. Referencing the Millennium Development Goals, Simbao called for a renewed commitment to providing universal access to HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, care and support, and to halting and reversing the spread of the epidemic by 2015.
