U.S. Launches Confidential HIV Testing Program in Zimbabwe

December 2, 2010

"The United States launched a program in Zimbabwe Wednesday to encourage HIV testing, with the U.S. ambassador, local musicians, broadcast personalities and soccer stars taking tests to mark the occasion," the Associated Press/Washington Post reports. After HIV tests were conducted on Wednesday, "all the results were kept personal and confidential, a core principle of the program," the news service writes. "U.S. Ambassador Charles A. Ray said 'wiser older folk' like him are not always listened to, but he hoped the young, popular celebrities should set example that others would follow" (Shaw, 12/1).
