Un nouvel espoir pour les femmes enceintes séropositives en RDC

Il y a juste un an, j’ai rencontré la Représentante de l’UNICEF en RDC, Madame Barbara Bentein, qui avait interrompu ses congés annuels pour me rencontrer et voir comment l’UNICEF pourrait soutenir la RDC dans le financement des traitements antirétroviraux (ARV) à vie pour les femmes enceintes positives (Option B+[1]) au virus de l’immunodéficience humaine (VIH) dans le cadre du Programme de prévention de la Transmission Mère-Enfant (PTME).

Situation Update

In southern Chad, nearly 50% of populations who have arrived in the past months remain in transit sites. A new site (Maingama) has been identified by the Government, and transfer will begin next week. MSF surveillance shows that under-5 mortality rates far surpass the WHO emergency threshold of 2 per-sons/10,000/ day (5.4/10,000/day in Gbiti; 3.1/10,000/day in Gado Bedzere).

Annual Letter 2014

Before joining USAID, I never could have imagined the depth of passion that exists for our nation’s leadership in global development.

When I was sworn in, people often asked me if I was worried about the unpopularity of development. According to nearly every poll, Americans wanted to cut foreign aid. But over the last four years, I have seen how a new model of development that delivers meaningful results in a cost-effective way can inspire people from all walks of life.
