She said this in a statement to commemorate World AIDS Day.

"I will continue to organize free testing, support the Ghana AIDS Commission and the National AIDS Control Programme in their behavioural change advocacy and encourage ante natal and HIV prevention services for pregnant women”, Mrs. Mahama who is also President of the Organisation of African First Ladies Against AIDS (OAFLA) stated.

“We must End AIDS among our Children to ultimately achieve that AIDS-free generation,” the first lady added.
