Africa Against Ebola Commemorates HIV/AIDS Day

1 December 2015 - Johannesburg - Africa Against Ebola Solidarity Trust today joined the rest of the world in commemorating the HIV/AIDS Day.

Africa  Against Ebola Solidarity Trust is an Historic African Union and African Private Sector initiative which funded the recruitment, selection and training and deployment of Health Workers to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

"It is that time of the year when we remember the devastation that has been done to the continent and the world at large by the HIV/AIDS pandemic. It is the resilience and commitment of men and women that today with better health care no one should die of HIV/AIDS. That's is the reason as Africa Against Ebola we continue to call for a total revamp and redevelopment of Africa's health care at works standards,' echoed Strive Masiyiwa Chairperson AAEST.

Dr. Zuma serves as the patron of this historic partnership of the AU and African Businesses- Africa Against Ebola Solidarity Trust.

The Trust was instrumental in funding the Ebola fight having been the largest contributor with well over $30 million dollars committed allowing for the deployment of 856 health workers to the most affected areas of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
