Creating Sustainable Health Care Solutions For An AIDS-Free Generation In Africa

“[W]ith the recent birth of the one millionth HIV-free baby born to an HIV-positive mother there, hope for an African generation free from this disease is alive thanks to the remarkable impact of antiretroviral drugs,” John Howe, president and CEO of Project HOPE, writes in the Huffington Post’s “Impact” blog. Howe discusses several Project HOPE initiatives that have helped people living with HIV, and he writes, “Much of the great success in the broad fight against AIDS in Africa is attributed to [PEPFAR], a campaign established by former President George W. Bush, and which marks its 10th anniversary this summer.” He continues, “Currently, Project HOPE’s work in Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Tanzania is conducted in partnership with these countries’ Ministries of Health, PEPFAR and [USAID].” Howe says Project HOPE’s goals mirror those of PEPFAR, by “creating sustainable health care solutions for Africa’s future generations … with the intent of helping people help themselves” (7/9).
