Ethiopian health care professionals living in Sweden have joined forces to fight the spread of AIDS and other diseases in their homeland.
"We have a moral obligation to assist those living in-country," explained Wubshet Mamo, PhD, a research scientist at AstraZeneca PLC. During the First International Conference on AIDS in Ethiopia held last month in Addis Ababa, Mamo described the efforts of the Association of Ethiopian Health Professionals in Sweden (AEHPS), which was established in 1992 in Stockholm.
