Swaziland Receives Inadequate Foreign Funding to Address HIV/AIDS Epidemic, King Mswati Says

February 14, 2006

Swazi King Mswati III on Friday said that international donors are not providing enough funding to curb the country's HIV/AIDS epidemic or revitalize its failing economy, the Associated Press reports. In a speech opening the Swazi Parliament, Mswati said the country will allocate increased funding for HIV/AIDS-prevention programs and initiatives aimed at children who have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS. He also pledged funding for areas affected by drought in the country. In addition, Mswati called upon the country's residents to protect their families from HIV/AIDS. Swaziland has an estimated HIV prevalence rate of 38%, according to the Associated Press (Associated Press, 2/10).
