INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES


Stand up against HIV/AIDS

"We live in a completely interdependent world, which simply means we cannot escape each other. How we respond to AIDS depends, in part, on whether we understand this interdependence. It is not someone else's problem. This is everybody's problem."

Bill Clinton - Former President, United State of America

 
 
 
 
 

We must stand in solidarity with one another, be proactive to our health challenges, and increase inter-continental scientific research partnerships and development efforts to complement the various national and regional plans already underway. Ownership and sustainability should form the basis of our next plan of actions.

Goodluck Jonathan - President, Federal Republic of Nigeria
