Statement by the Executive Director Celebrating Milestones - Stepping up the Momentum
Another fleeting year has passed, one reflects with admiration on the increasing positive yields in the HIV response, thanks to the consented effort of all the players, particularly, the Prime Minister's Office, government, development partners, civil society organisations, people living with HIV and AIDS, as well as the NERCHA team. The country has progressed to being at the verge of ending AIDS, which is a hestoric achievement.
For the first time ever, NERCHA and partners hosted a successful National HIV and AIDS conference in the country themed :"From AIDS Crisis to Opportunities: What the world can learn from Swaziland". The conference showcased the journey of the country's HIV and AIDS response from inception with the aim of identifying successes and lessons learnt, with the view of sharing it with the rest of the world.
