The OAFLA organisation changes its name to OAFLAD

Posted by Charles Clerck (Admin) Feb 12, 2019

OAFLA the Organization of African First Ladies against HIV/AIDS has changed its name to the Organization of African First Ladies for Development (OAFLAD). The name change took place at the 22nd Ordinary General Assembly of OAFLA in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. You can read the full press release here or you can watch it here.

OAFLAD is an advocacy organization where the First Ladies of Africa seek to use their unique position to advocate for policies that make health services accessible and laws that boost women and youth empowerment. 

With the change of the name, the first ladies would now be working in six thematic areas instead of mainly HIV and AIDS. The areas are Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), gender equality, women and youth empowerment, Reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH), Social security and protection including; persons with disabilities, institutional capacity strengthening as well as HIV/AIDS.

You can read about this and more on the 32nd African Union (AU) Heads of State and Government Summit here
