      "Free Trade, Wars to Top Agenda at Africa Summit"
      Reuters (www.reuters.com) (08/03/00); Mseteka, Buchizya
      African officials will convene this weekend for the Southern
      African Development Community (SADC) summit in Namibia. Issues
      the leaders plan to discuss include the war in Angola, the
      economic decline of the sub-continent, and AIDS. Nearly 11
      million of the 190 million people who live in the 14-nation SADC
      are infected with HIV, according to statistics.

      PANA Wire Service (www.africanews.org/PANA) (08/02/00)
      The European Union reportedly will provide $48 million Namibian
      dollars to help the Southern African Development Community (SADC)
      HIV/AIDS response project. Dr. Thuthula Balfour, coordinator of
      the SADC's health sector, said that all sectors involved in
      economic development maintain HIV/AIDS programs. One issue that
      the SADC Health Sectoral Committee of Ministers hope to discuss
      at the upcoming summit is the offers by major pharmaceutical
      companies to lower the prices of their AIDS drugs. According to
      Balfour, the health ministers have come up with a minimum package
      of services that must be offered if AIDS drugs are provided, one
      that highlights the need for a comprehensive approach to care for
      HIV and AIDS patients.
