The Government of the Republic of Uganda would highly appreciate receiving the valuable support of the government of the Republic of Belarus for Ms. Winnie Byanyima's candidacy to the Executive Director of UNAIDS.
Ms. Byanyima, currently Executive Director of Oxfam is deeply involved in leadership in government, the UN system, and the development sector. At a personal and social level, Ms. Byanyima has from the earliest days of the HIV/AIDS pandemic been particularly aware and committed to addressing the needs of those most affected by the disease. She has shown she can bring together all sectors to advance solutions to global problems. Therefore, we believe the Organization will greatly benefit from her stewardship.
Considering the brotherly/Good relations enjoyed between our two States/Government, Uganda would appreciate the invaluable support to the candidature of Ms. Winnie Byanyima.
