Dr. Ezekiel “Zeke” Emanuel, MD Ph.D, Special Advisor for Health Policy at the Office of Management and Budget, is currently on a two-week trip to Africa to look at various health programs. Earlier this week, he and other US officials visited an HIV prevention program in Mojo, Ethiopia, called the TransACTION project, a five-year, $40 million USAID-funded initiative that started last year. Led by Save the Children, with technical assistance by AED and PSI, the project will eventually bring an assortment of HIV prevention tactics into 110 urban and roadside communities in Djibouti, Ethiopia, Sudan, and Kenya. This is the second of a two-part interview with John Donnelly. In this post, Emanuel talks about the importance of matching prevention tools with the specific dynamic of HIV transmission in a community.
