For 2024, UNAIDS has chosen the theme “Let Communities Lead.” In this program, you hear from children and their mothers who have come together to deal with HIV education for children and their parents. Also discussed is self-esteem building for those who live with the infection and the medications and histories of children with the disease. Also heard is an administrator from Kenya’s Ministry of Education and a UNAIDS employee speaking to the press.
Speakers for today’s program are the children, mothers, Margret Mwirigihe (Head of the HIV and AIDS Control Unit in the Ministry of Education) and Angeli Achrekar [ahn-jeli ahsh-reh-kahr] (UN Under-Secretary General and Deputy Executive Director OF UNAIDS; and whom has previously worked with PEPFAR).
