Cameroon’s First Lady Chantal Biya, who is also the Founding President of the African Synergy for the fight against HIV/AIDS and Suffering, reassured persons affected by HIV/AIDS, that she will not relent her efforts in the fight against the disease, even in a situation like the COVID-19, which has interrupted so much over the past two years. The First Lady wrote to the public on the 1st of December 2021, which was observed as World AIDS Day.
“I take this opportunity to reaffirm the determination of this Panafrican Association to stay fully mobilized alongside the international community, in the fight against this scourge” she wrote.
“The path that we have walked through in the past two decades, is very much appreciated. We have accomplished extraordinary progress of which we can be legitimately proud.
“But the journey towards the eradication of AIDS as a threat to public health by 2030, is still very long. This objective is ambitious and each one of us is expected to take an engagement and demonstrate determination” Chantal Biya stated.
She recalled the setbacks caused by the COVID pandemic which has somehow perturbed the services put in place for the fight against HIV/AIDS, but encouraged everyone to remain steadfast in the battle against the health threat, which has rendered many miserable for years.
