Standing on the border of Namibia and Angola, on one side, signs in English welcome you to Namibia. On the other, signs in Portuguese issue warm greetings to Angola. People, animals, motorcycles and vehicles freely pass back and forth across the two countries. 

US Ambassador in Namibia with TB patients
March 22, 2017

I feel privileged to be here this morning, just two days before World Tuberculosis Day on March 24th.  The Okuryangava Clinic is a crucial health site in our combined effort alongside the Namibian government to fight TB and HIV.  Since 2015, with the support of the U.S. government through PEPFAR and USAID, some 350 patients have accessed TB treatment and referral services to HIV care, right here at this TB-Directly Observed Treatment center.  Some of those patients are here today.  Please join me in a round of applause to recognize their efforts and commitment to beating this disease.
