UNAIDS Executive Director Discusses HIV/AIDS Control In Rwanda

August 31, 2009

UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé on Thursday praised Rwanda for its successes in combating HIV/AIDS and highlighted prevention of mother-to-child transmission of the virus as an area that needs work, New Times/allAfrica.com reports. He said, "Rwanda has registered good results with regard to the fight against HIV/AIDS in the last fifteen years especially by lowering transmission levels and increasing access to treatment for those who are infected." More than 350,000 babies worldwide get HIV/AIDS at birth each year even though it is preventable, Sidibé said (Nambi, 8/29).
