  • Commemorating World Fisheries Day

    United States Embassy Ambassador-Designate Thomas F. Daughton shares his thoughts about World Fisheries Day. He highlights how, in Africa, sustainable fishing is a critical food security concern but notes that the economic potential is great. An excerpt of the attached opinion editorial: “In Namibia, fisheries are a dynamic part of the national economy contributing between 6 and 7 percent of Gross Domestic Product.  Protecting marine environments is not just about fish—it is about people.  It is about jobs.”

  • Launch of HIV Testing and Counseling Strategy

    In the past decade, Namibia has made great progress in achieving high rates of HIV treatment and PMTCT coverage. However, more work is still needed to reach an AIDS-free generation and the key step to accomplishing this goal is testing and counselling. This is why we were eager to support MOHSS to develop the new HIV Testing and Counseling Strategy being launched today.
