First Lady Chairs OAFLA General Assembly

The organisation of African First Ladies against HIV/AIDS (OAFLA) has held its 16th Ordinary General Assembly in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The meeting, which brought together more than 12 first ladies and representatives, partners, donors and technical advisors, was on the theme:
“Advancing Sustainable Partnerships to End Paediatric AIDS & Improve Adolescent Sexual Reproductive Health & Rights.”

Held twice a year in January and June on the margins of the African Union Summit, the meeting enables the first ladies to come together to take stock, refocus their commitment and collectively seek ways to overcome the challenges, and identify sustainable and scalable action areas.

The First Lady, Mrs Lordina Mahama who chaired the meeting, expressed her appreciation to the other first ladies for their support throughout all the meetings. “I am confident that together, we can make monumental strides during my tenure of office.”

She said in furtherance of OAFLA’s pledge in South Africa for an AIDS-free generation, members should jump into a campaign mode and embark on a year-long intensive intervention in their respective countries in collaboration with the National AIDS councils and commissions, ministries of health and UNAIDS of their respective countries.
