We support a regional HIV& AIDS legislation, which we believe will lead to realization of a number of immediate and long term benefits. In the spirit of regional integration and the social and economic ties existing among the people of East Africa, we recognize that the legislation will not only facilitate further cooperation in the sector, but also accelerate regional program and project development. This will lead to a stronger and integrated response to HIV and AIDS, which will eventually result in the reduction of HIV Prevalence and Incident rates whilst promoting HIV &AIDS -related care and support. Your signatures will mark yet another milestone in the movement towards deeper integration and overall social development for the people of East Africa. Based on the vast experience we have gathered working in the field and looking at the provisions of the Bill, we believe that its implementation will improve and help harmonize the policy, legal and programmatic frameworks on HIV&AIDS in the region. In addition to fostering harmonization, the Bill strives to contribute to the attainment of Universal Access to HIV Prevention, treatment, care and support for all throughout East Africa. The Bill also embodies the Rights -based Approach which promotes realization of rights, particularly the right to access services. As such, the actualization of the principles, norms and ideals carried by the Bill will help speed up and actualize regional integration in the Health Sector. Your Excellencies, We urge you to join hands with your fellow brethren, their Excellencies Presidents of the Republic of Kenya, The Republic of Uganda and the Republic of Burundi respectively, who have already signed the Bill. We believe that just like you would, they have seen merit and potential in the Bill. Your signatures of Assent will affirm the solidarity that has always been existed among you, our leaders and effectively crown the 5 - year efforts and support of the multiple stakeholders in the region and bring them to fruition. WE DO HEREBY PLEDGE to undertake to support and work closely with the relevant Government Ministries, Departments, institutions and other stakeholders towards actualization of the of the principles and ideals outlined within the Act and thereby improve the overall Health response regionally. We will work at forging necessary partnerships and continue with advocacy with a view to making legislation contribute actively to the response both at country and EAC levels. Together we can!
