It’s first with Mr. Michel Sidibé, Executive Director that the First Lady has exchanged in her suite of the New York Hotel. It was for to the Head of the UN agency, during the meeting, to update on the support to children with AIDS in Côte d'Ivoire with Mrs. Dominique Ouattara, Special Ambassador for UNAIDS for the elimination of mother to child transmission and promotion of pediatric HIV treatment. "We have an update on the fight against AIDS in general, but particularly the role of Mrs. Dominique Ouattara in this fight. How ultimately she has helped us push the agenda of the elimination of transmission from mother to child. Today we see enormously results in several countries. Also, the matter was also about how we can get together to ensure that the millions of children who do not have access to treatment can have access. I think this is an agenda that is close to her heart. We will work together. We will ensure that we achieve our goals by 2020, "said Mr. Michel Sidibé after the meeting with Mrs. Dominique Ouattara.
