As one of the United Nations’ International Goodwill Ambassador for UNAIDS, Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway has been on a trip to Tanzania to see the work made in reducing the transmission of HIV.

Mette-Marit, dressed simply in a pair of beige pants and the traditional red UNAIDS t-shirt, visited several facilities that provide health care and services to women and children affected by the disease. One of the facilities was one of 26 Pastoral Activities and Services for People with AIDS Dar es Salaam Archdiocese (PASADA) clinics.

The Crown Princess met with a number of women and children who have utilised the facilities that have become available, as well as workers.

She said that it was “moving to meet mothers who are in good health and caring for children born free from HIV thanks to antiretroviral medicines…it is also particularly rewarding to see young people taking up leadership roles in the AIDS response and being equipped with the skills to guide Tanzania towards an AIDS-free generation.”
