The Joint Programme on HIV / AIDS United Nations (UNAIDS) and the Economic Commission for Africa are intensifying efforts to combat HIV in Africa.

The executive director of UNAIDS, Michel Sidibé, and the executive secretary of the Economic Commission, Carlos Lopes, discussed ways to support the response to the continent's fight against HIV through funding mechanisms.

Sidibé and Lopes also spoke about the importance of collecting reliable data to document the African potential to produce quality medicines, including antiretroviral cocktail against AIDS. They met in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Sidibé also welcomed the choice of the President of Senegal, Macky Sall, to integrate the New Partnership for Africa's Development (Nepad - the acronym in English).

The group is formed by 20 African heads of state that are intended to guide policy group on health issues, which includes besides AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.

The executive director said that Nepad is an important partner of UNAIDS and is helping to combat HIV across the continent.
