USAID’s support for breastfeeding is longstanding, going back to the 1970’s, when USAID raised concern over a decline in breastfeeding.  We are proud that our “Breastfeeding for Child Survival Strategy” was launched all the way back in 1990, establishing breastfeeding as a critical component of our programs.

Innovation is a hallmark of U.S. assistance in the health sector and this is an innovative and vibrant approach to increase HIV testing and support the 90-90-90 strategy. I am confident that our partnerships can help generate further innovations to benefit our health objectives. I’m proud that USAID through PEPFAR, has been a strong partner with South Africa in the fight against HIV and we will continue to partner because, despite great success, there is still much to do. Once again I applaud the South African Government for their commitment to the fight against HIV.
