October 21, 2010
Liberia has launched the Agenda for Accelerating Country Action on Women, Girls, Gender Equality and HIV, a pilot program that will focus on "advocating for high level commitment on the agenda for accelerating the country's action for women, girls, gender equality and HIV as well as advocating for the protection and wellbeing of children," the Inquirer writes. President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf said at the launch, "[w]e do accept the twin challenge ... to do more for education and to also make sure that together with the partners we will have more people living with HIV and AIDS to speak out." The news service adds, "Liberia is the first country to have launched an operational plan taking into account efforts made by the government to prevent and control HIV and AIDS" (Saywah, 10/19).
