Foreign Minister Dr Tedros Adhanom told a Forum on Health in Washington that the key to achieving an Aids-free generation in Africa was strong commitment of African leaders to this aim.
Dr. Tedros was moderating the Health signature event organized by the US Government during the US-Africa Summit. The theme of the Forum was “Investing in Health: Investing in Africa’s Future.”
The high-level discussion Forum, also co-chaired by US Secretary of Health and Human Service, Sylvia Burwell, brought together senior U.S. government officials, African leaders, Ministers of Health, and senior health policymakers envisioning the future of U.S.-African global health partnerships in achieving global health security, promoting science and health, reaching an AIDS-free generation, and ending preventable child and maternal deaths.
The event discussed major health issues including how to keep the world safe and secure from infectious diseases and to deal with emerging threats and challenges.
It also considered ways to utilize science and research to accelerate positive health effects and on methods to put an end to preventable maternal and child deaths.
This discussion highlighted the decades-long U.S.-African health partnership that has saved and improved millions of lives.
It also provided an opportunity for U.S. and African leaders to agree on how we can further advance our shared health and development goals through our strong partnerships.
