With the highest reported HIV/AIDS rate in the world, Botswana is experiencing the most devastating pandemic to hit Sothern Africa in recent memory. An estimated 260 000 adult Batswana in a population of 1,6 million are now living with HIV/AIDS. Without affordable and accessible treatment, most of them will develop AIDS and die within a decade.
We need the support of the global community to ensure our survival. To this end, cultivating public/private partnerships is a priority on Botswana’s HIV/AIDS agenda. ACHAP is an integral part of Botswana’s comprehensive approach to the HIV epidemic.
