#42-23 HIV-affected Children … and their mothers, on the Kenya coast

For 2024, UNAIDS has chosen the theme “Let Communities Lead.”  In this program, you hear from children and their mothers who have come together in their community to deal with HIV education for children and their parents, and self-esteem-building for those who live with the infection. They speak in Kiswahili, with translation. You hear about their medications and their histories with the disease.  Also heard: Margaret Mwirigi, an administrator from Kenya’s department of Education; and Angeli Achrekar, a UN Undersecretary-General and Deputy Director of UNAIDS, speaking to the press.
