On 11 October, BE Health’s peer educators in Djibouti had the chance to introduce themselves and their activities to Mr Michel Sidibé, UNAIDS’ Executive Director, as well as to Dr Yamina Chakkar UNAIDS’ regional director and Dr Dado Sy, UNAIDS’ representative in Djibouti. Mr Sidibé inspired BE Health’s entire team by sharing his long experience in how to best convey messages to prevent HIV from spreading in their communities. There is still a long way to go to stop the transmission of HIV in Djibouti. Mr Sidibé’s encouragement was therefore highly appreciated.
“BE Health is the kind of public-private partnership that can inspire change and transform the lives of people affected by HIV, tuberculosis, malaria and other infectious diseases. We can all play a part in creating a healthier world.”
Michel Sidibé, UNAIDS Executive Director
