Organization of First Ladies (OAFLA) against HIV/Aids



In 2002, at a meeting facilitated by UNAIDS and the International AIDS Trust, the Organization of African First Ladies against HIV/Aids (OAFLA) was created with the objective of advocacy, mobilizing resources and developing partnerships around HIV/Aids. 


OAFLA’S  capacity was recognized as a powerful force that would add value to national, regional and sub-regional interventions.  National campaigns, which have been taken on by individual countries, have raised issues of orphans through the “Treat Each Child as Your Own” campaign, as well as promoted a Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT) campaign entitled “Save the Unborn Child”, which have been successful and visible.
