Ohio: Former U.S. Rep. Driehaus Named Peace Corps' Swaziland HIV/AIDS Education Director
April 4, 2011
Steve Driehaus of West Price Hill has been named the Peace Corps' country director of HIV/AIDS education for Swaziland. "This is a nation where 15 percent of the population has been orphaned by AIDS. They really need help," said Driehaus, who was a Peace Corps volunteer in West Africa in the late 1980s. Swaziland's adult HIV prevalence, 26.3 percent, is the world's highest. Driehaus will direct 75 volunteers engaged in HIV prevention education. With his wife and their three school-age children, he will move to Swaziland in June for the two-and-a-half-year posting. Driehaus, a Democrat, lost his 2010 bid for reelection as the U.S. Representative from Ohio's 1st congressional district.
