    Editorial -- CDC-Namibia welcomes new country director -- Naemi Shoopala wins global award -- An Oral history of the national, CDC, and PEPFAR HIV/AIDS response in Namibia.

    The PEPFAR 10-year anniversary issue of Pamwe (“Together” in Oshiwambo and Otjiherero).

    Just a few years after winning a bloody liberation struggle against apartheid in 1990, the government of Namibia was faced with a crisis of enormous proportions – an HIV epidemic that was ravaging the newly independent and ever-diverse society. Ten years into the national response to this epidemic we can now say that Namibia faced this challenge as it had faced previous challenges – with commitment, industry, and a spirit of camaraderie . Ten years into the national HIV response we can reflect on the fact that Namibia has achieved among the highest impact in reducing HIV incidence and AIDS-related mortality in the world . But is Namibia resting on its laurels, content to receive the accolades and encomiums of the global community? Absolutely not!
