LIBYA: EU strengthens anti-AIDS support in Benghazi

[This report does not necessarily reflect the views of the United Nations]

JOHANNESBURG, 6 September (PLUSNEWS) - The European Union (EU) has begun providing Libya with advice and technical assistance on how to deal with HIV/AIDS, after releasing US $1.2 million to Libya in July.

EU and Libyan experts met for the first time on Tuesday to discuss the collaboration, which includes upgrading the north African country's Benghazi Centre for Infectious Diseases and Immunology to international standards.

Agence France-Presse quoted EU external relations commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner as saying, "If all parties play their part in this joint effort, the action plan should quickly result in a substantial improvement for the HIV-positive people and their families."
