Anton Kerr, Head of Policy at the Alliance said: ‘We feel that the Global Strategy strongly complements that of the Alliance.
‘Through our current strategy, HIV and Healthy Communities: 2010-2012, the Alliance aims to lead community action on HIV with direct impact on Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 4 and 5 through greater integration and linkages of programmes to support a continuum of care and support for women and children.
‘There is significant overlap between the countries where we work and those that have the highest levels of maternal and child mortality. This includes programming to reach over 300,000 women living with HIV by the end of 2011 in Zambia, Uganda, Sudan and Kenya to decrease maternal mortality.’
