Geneva: Morocco to Represent African Constituency at UNITAID
Morocco has been appointed, by acclamation, in Geneva as the representative of African Constituency by the Executive Board of UNITAID.
The announcement of this decision came during a meeting held by the African Group of Ambassadors, Tuesday, February, 16th in Geneva, during which the Ambassador of Central African Republic, in his capacity as coordinator of the African Group on health-related issues, presented the results of the meeting of ambassadors of State Parties to the Memorandum of Agreement to join the UNITAID, held on February, 5th.
Appointing Morocco as representative of the African Constituency at the UNTAID is a new recognition of the continental leadership of the Kingdom, its continuous work and numerous initiatives for human solidarity for the benefit of African countries, and its permanent commitment to the benefit of cooperation in order to raise challenges in the health sector and achieve Sustainable Development Goals at a continental level.
The aid granted by His Majesty King Mohammed VI to many African countries, in order to accompany them in their efforts to combat Covid-19, is a symbol of the African cooperation and solidarity that Morocco advocates.
The UNITAID, headquartered in Geneva and hosted by the World Health Organization, is working to find innovative solutions to prevent and treat communicable diseases faster, more effectively and at reasonable costs in low and middle-income countries.
