“Welcome. It has been a productive six months for all of us. I deeply appreciate your time and many contributions since we last met. Thank you, my sister Thoraya Obaid, for our joint mission to the Democratic Republic of Congo and for bringing together UNAIDS and Women Deliver. Your leadership in the AIDS response has made our collaboration at the global and country level exemplary. I look forward to hearing you speak on behalf of all the Cosponsors today.
