African countries have been called on to upscale funding for HIV prevention and keep it steady to save lives and ensure national advancement.
This was the call from a three-day regional HIV prevention meeting organised by the South-South Learning Network (SSLN), which facilitates country-to-country learning and knowledge exchange and provides technical assistance to countries within the network.
The SSLN is an initiative of the Global HIV Prevention Coalition. It is implemented by Genesis Analytics and the University of Manitoba, with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The sub-regional technical meeting in Lagos was for West and Central Africa, and was attended by more than 30 country champions from Cote d’Ivoire, Republic of Congo, Ghana and Nigeria. Read more on Strengthening HIV prevention through facilitated South-to-South learning
