AHF Eswatini and its partner, the Manzini City Council, recently celebrated breaking ground on a new state-of-the-art medical clinic in Manzini’s city center that is slated to become the country’s center of excellence for HIV and TB prevention and care.
Speaking at the ceremony attended by numerous government officials and AHF staff, Eswatini Health Minister Lizzie Nkosi remarked on the strategic placement of the new facility at a centralized hub that can serve people from multiple areas.
“This project is a continuation of AHF’s vision aimed at health advocacy,” said Minister Nkosi. “It rightly aligns with the need to ensure that people living with HIV are retained in care, as this contributes to the reduction of new infections.” She concluded by thanking AHF’s leadership and the Manzini City Council for the cooperation that resulted in the new clinic.
AHF has been working in Eswatini since 2007 and currently provides care to nearly 31,300 registered patients across seven sites.
