Honoured to join @OAFLAD’s 27th Ordinary General Assembly: Closing the Gender Gap, to address a topic very close to my heart - how to #endAIDS on our continent, Africa. And in particular, how to protect our girls and young women from HIV and AIDS.
Through @OAFLAD's #FreetoShine initiative, many of your countries have already made great strides toward eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV. Botswana🇧🇼, for example, was recently certified by @WHO as close to ending mother-to-child transmission. 👏🏾 #AUSummit2023
We still have a long way to go - every 2 minutes, an adolescent girl or young woman acquires HIV. But we know the solutions to this: when girls complete secondary education their chance of getting HIV reduces by up to 50%.

Wonderful evening organised last night by @BCIU with friends and partners to celebrate @PEPFAR's #20YearsofImpact - such a bipartisan 🇺🇸 contribution to the world and us here in the Africa. #AUSummit2023 #PEPFARat20
I was inspired by the focus @POTUS gave in last week's #SOTU address to the life-saving impact of @PEPFAR. He said ‘the bipartisan effort thru PEPFAR has transformed the global fight against HIV/AIDS. It has been a huge success.’ What an endorsement!
The value of @PEPFAR is so much more than the billions of dollars that the 🇺🇸 people continue to provide for HIV every year. Look at PEFPAR’s impact & results - today they are supporting over 20m people with #HIV treatment in over 55 countries. #AUSummit

AIDS is not over. As @USAmbPEPFAR has said: Africa remains the continent with the highest burden. More people probably died of #AIDS-related illnesses in 2021 than COVID on this continent.

We celebrate our progress - over last 12 years or so, Africa is the continent that has made the fastest progress reducing new HIV infections & stopping AIDS-related deaths. We still have a challenge, and financing is critical part of it.

We have been successful because of the political leadership of my predecessor @MichelSidibe who had foresight that @_AfricanUnion is the place where to mobilise political leadership to fight AIDS, forming strategic partnership w/AUC & Head of State to commit to targets. #AUSummit ImageImage
