Mohammed Al Amoudi and the Wider Fight Against HIV/AIDS

Mohammed’s contribution to ICASA 2011 is not the only example of his commitment to the fight against AIDS and HIV in his home continent. In addition to the $15 million contributed to ICASA 2011, Mohammed has pledged, separately, sums in the region of $20m over a decade to fighting AIDS in Africa through the William J. Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI).

A month after the Conference, Mohammed was honoured by Ethiopian President Woldegiorgis for his outstanding contribution to the Conference and was praised for his contribution to Ethiopia’s national development.

The Clinton Health Access Initiative was a global health organization committed to strengthening integrated health systems in the developing world and expanding access to care and treatment for HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis.

Established in 2002 by President Clinton as the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative, CHAI helped more than 2 million people access the medicines needed for treatment. This represents nearly half of all the people living with HIV and on treatment in developing countries.
