Lesotho: Partnering with Lesotho in the Fight against HIV/AIDS (August 2009)


On August 20, 2009, Lesao Lehohla, Deputy Prime Minister of the Government of the Kingdom of Lesotho and Robert B. Nolan, U.S. Ambassador to Lesotho, signed the "Partnership Framework to Support Implementation of the Lesotho National HIV and AIDS Response."

Under this Framework, the U.S. Government, through the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), and the Government of Lesotho intend to collaboratively develop, plan and implement a five-year strategy that jointly contributes to the implementation of the Lesotho National HIV and AIDS Strategic Plan, 2006-2011, in order to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Lesotho. This Partnership Framework is the fourth of its kind - after Malawi, Swaziland, and Angola - established between a U.S. Government PEPFAR program and a partner government.
