HIV / AIDS Activities

Though Mauritania, supposedly, has a low HIV/AIDS prevalence rate, this may not be good news if nothing is done to fight the pandemic.  Mission continues to support more engagement of the GIRM in the battle against HIV/AIDS through funds made available by USAID.  With a $100,000 budget for the WAAF, the Embassy funds relevant and viable HIV/AIDS-related activities ranging from formal peer educators’ training, educational campaigns, and volunteer testing and counseling centers. These activities are implemented by local NGOs and coordinated by AWARE/HIV/AIDS, an international contractor based in Accra, Ghana.
