Speech by Michel Sidibé, Executive Director of UNAIDS on the occasion of New York Forum for Africa, Libreville, Gabon
Today we can tell the world that soon there will be more African children born with AIDS. There are several countries, including Gabon and Rwanda, where we already have generations born without AIDS. And I believe that this is a small indication of this victory, which of course has resulted in change on several levels. Today we can say that we have not only reduced the price of the drug. We produce one of the best drugs in the world, in South Africa, and no longer for $15,000 per year, but $80 per year per person.
