The Southern Africa Development Community (SADC), with contributions from MSH-implemented projects and other partners, has approved new regional standards of care along transport corridors in the region. Endorsed by Ministers of Health and Transport, the Regional Minimum Standards and Brand for HIV and other Health Services (RMSB) aim to improve delivery and quality of services for key populations.
MSH is deeply saddened by the loss of Nelson Mandela (“Madiba”), South Africa’s iconic first black president who fought to overthrow the oppression of apartheid. Madiba’s unwavering commitment to reconciliation, peace, and human dignity were hallmarks of his legendary “long walk to freedom.” In 1993, he shared the Nobel Peace Prize.
In later years after his retirement, Mandela revealed that his son and daughter-in-law had died due to HIV & AIDS and became a courageous advocate, defying the government’s denial of the epidemic.
