Meet the 2016 PEPFAR Heroes – individuals who have dedicated their efforts towards an AIDS-free generation in Uganda.

This week, Ambassador Malac recognized the 2016 PEPFAR Heroes. These Ugandans have worked tirelessly on the front lines of The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)’s HIV efforts.

“We hear a lot of statistics about AIDS overall – how many people are affected by the disease, what kind of measures we are putting in place, and how much we are investing in ending the epidemic. But what I find most inspiring in our global efforts – and especially right here in Uganda – are the personal stories of those who are on the ground, making a difference in the lives of individuals and an impact in putting an end to this disease”, Ambassador Deborah R. Malac
