NEWYORK: King Mswati has, on behalf of the Kingdom of eSwatini pleaded to eradicate HIV/AIDS as a public health threat by the year 2030, Government online platforms reported on Wednesday.
Speaking during a high level meeting on the sidelines of the United Nations(UN) General Assembly, the King who further cautioned of existing gaps that could reverse Eswatini’s achievements in the HIV and AIDS response was represented by Health Minister Lizzie Nkosi.
“I believe that the initiatives we have put in place will ensure that we sustain the gains and close the gaps for the 95-95-95 and ensure that the 95-95-95 agenda is rolled out at all levels, especially amongst all priority populations at risk of HIV. There is no doubt that Eswatini's successful strides in the HIV response would not have been possible without the continued and predictable funding and technical support from you all,” said the King who was represented by the Health Minister.
