REMARKS

BY

MR. WAGONA VINCENT:  SENIOR ASSISTANT DPP /AO/PATRON HIV AIDS COMMITTEE

 

We wish to thank the Government, specifically the President’s office for the innovation of the workplace HIV/AIDS committees for all the Government Ministries and departments, and for permitting these committees to source funds elsewhere other than the Government.

It is this effort that saw the ODPP HIV/AIDS committee participate at the Global Fund country concept writing.

I am proud to be the patron of this committee because of the commendable job that is going on in our organization by this committee. The committee has greatly spearheaded dispelling of stigma through her quarterly awareness campaigns, the committee supports the disclosed staff with a monthly allowance to improve their nutrition; we have work stations whose output has improved greatly due to diet support, the committee has sourced and placed condom dispensers in some of the  staff wash rooms and they Endeavor  to refill the dispensers at all time, and whenever funds allow the committee holds ODPP awareness week usually covering three regions each year.

We also commend the HIV/AIDS committee for the innovation of the rights based approach in the criminal justice system for the end of AIDS. This is an innovation we as an office pledge to support and we call upon everyone concerned to rally with us.

On this note we wish to thank the Global Fund through the ministry of Health for supporting the ODPP office in championing the rights based approach to end AIDS by facilitating the training of trainers.

 End of HIV/AIDS is a battle that calls every effort and indeed every one; it is the world’s desire hence mine and yours.

To this end, our office will continue to give a quarterly contribution to the HIV/AIDS committee to help them to plan and do awareness among the staff members.

Thank you.
