As a Councillor, I believe that "prevention is better than cure". We, as community leaders are geared to support all HIV prevention interventions; primary, secondary and tertiary prevention. We are looking towards reducing new HIV cases by refocusing on vulnerable populations and improving the quality of lives for those who are HIV positive. The Fast-Track Cities Initiative will always be at the center of our agenda.
Blantyre City shares the belief that together in unity, we can reduce the impact of AIDS epidemic on those infected and affected. And because we have resolved to be a City in search of solutions to our problems, we will have no excuse if we do not stop the spread of HIV. We, as a City, agree to take action and our commitment is to end the epidemic.
