Swaziland: Partnering with Swaziland in the Fight against HIV/AIDS (June 2009)


On June 4, 2009, Maurice S. Parker, U.S. Ambassador to Swaziland, and Dr. Barnabas S. Dlamini, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Swaziland, signed the Swaziland Partnership Framework on HIV and AIDS for 2009-2013. This Partnership Framework is the second of its kind established between the U.S. Government and a host government.

The U.S. Government, through the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), will contribute to and align efforts with the Government of the Kingdom of Swaziland to reach the goals, objectives, strategies, and actions laid out in Swaziland's multi-sectoral National Strategic Framework on HIV/AIDS.

The Partnership Framework focuses on the development of a comprehensive national HIV prevention program, improving the coverage and quality of HIV-related treatment and care, mitigating the impacts of HIV/AIDS with a focus on children, increasing access to high quality medical male circumcision, and building the human and institutional capacity needed to achieve and sustain these goals.
