The General Assembly of the Organisation of African First Ladies against HIV/Aids (OAFLA) yesterday elected the First Lady Jeannette Kagame as the organisation’s Vice President.

Mrs. Kagame will serve in this capacity for 2 years, alongside Mrs. Hinda Deby Itno, the First Lady of Chad, who was elected President.

In her acceptance speech, Mrs. Kagame thanked fellow First Ladies for the “confidence bestowed upon her to carry forward OAFLAs vision”.

She also highlighted that gains made in the fight against HIV/Aids, were a result of working together in a committed way; and that she saw OAFLA’s future centred on more innovative and 
African based solutions.

This year’s General Assembly was held on the sidelines of the 50th anniversary of the African Union in Ethiopia. Prior to the First Ladies meeting, Mrs. Kagame attended the opening session of the AU commemoration.

OAFLA was established in 2002 as a continental initiative to advocate and mobilise resources for those affected and infected by HIV/Aids in Africa and provide leadership at the regional and national level to fight HIV/Aids.

From 2004 and 2006, Mrs. Kagame was the President of OAFLA and she championed with success the “Treat every Child as Your Own” continental campaign.
