Foundation President and CEO Charles Lyons in Rwanda
May 25, 2010
Foundation President and CEO Charles Lyons is currently in Rwanda, observing first-hand the Foundation’s HIV prevention, care and treatment, and counseling programs.
Today, Rwanda’s New Times newspaper chronicled his trip
, as well as the dramatic progress that’s been made in the country preventing new infections in infants and treating children and mothers living with HIV.
The Foundation has supported Rwanda’s scale-up of prevention and treatment services
since 2000, and serves as a leading partner with the Ministry of Health, local districts, and the U.S. government through USAID and the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).
Rwanda Country Director Cornelia Van Zyl recently sat down with us to discuss the successes and challenges of Rwanda’s response to pediatric HIV/AIDS.
Take a moment to hear about keys areas of progress – such as Rwanda’s involvement of male partners in programs to prevent mother-to-child-transmission (PMTCT) of HIV – and see the faces of the children, mothers, and families the Foundation helps through its work.
