Mutharika to lead Global Fund conference in France

Malawian President Peter Mutharika has been asked by the Global Fund  to champion and lead next year’s conference in France to fight HIV and Aids, tuberculosis and malaria.

President Mutharika: Accepts the request  with humility

Global Fund executive director Peter Sands said in a letter dated  June 18 that the organisations has chosen President Mutharika because Malawi is thriving in the fight of the three pandemics.
