President Jammeh's HIV/AIDS therapy
Wednesday, January 09, 2008
The war against HIV in The Gambia has undoubtedly reduced the rate of people infected with HIV and a good number are no longer living with the virus.
HIV is a major problem in the African continent and a leading cause of death in Africa, but with the help of the president's treatment, the mortality rate of the people infected has minimised.
As you may be aware, a large number of people are infected and we must continue reminding ourselves and one another that HIV is a global human tragedy. Therefore, let us collaborate with our able leader to prevent the disease.
The Western world views the epidemic as a African disease because millions of those infected live in Africa. It is important to note that HIV has no geographical boundary.
People should be careful and honest with their partners in order to reduce the rate of HIV in The Gambia and give appropriate support to others.
Our hero is President Yahya Jammeh who has been able to discover a therapy. My fellow Gambians, let us be proud of our president and congratulate him for bringing hope to the lives of the sick.
