Cote d'Ivoire: Pepfar's Support to Fight HIV/Aids


A report in Fraternite Matin (p. 13) says that PEPFAR has donated motorcycles to government health centers in order to boost the fight against HIV/AIDS in Cote d'Ivoire. The paper quotes PEPFAR's interim director, Terri Wingate, as saying that the donation, valued at FCFA 15,156,000 (about US $28,000), will help reinforce the capacity of the health centers to provide assistance to HIV/AIDS orphans and other children who have become vulnerable as a result of the disease.
