Malawi Interfaith Aids Association For HIV AIDS Inclusion In political parties manifestos.
Malawi Interfaith Aids Association MIAA has appealed to political parties to include issues of HIV AIDS in their manifestos.
The appeal was made during a press briefing in Lilongwe.
Speaking to reporters MIAA executive director Robert Ngaiyaye said political parties should not only focus on political agenda but consider other issues that affect people.
Ngaiyaye said “political parties must play a big role in promoting 50-50 campaign and encourage young people to work hard in school to overcome gender based violence.”
He urged religious leaders, the media and stakeholders to join hands with MIAA in supporting political leaders that will include HIV AIDS issues in their plans.
