The umbrella body of African First Ladies have announced a change in its name and mission at its 22nd General Assembly in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa.
The Assembly which was held on the sidelines of the just ended 32nd African Union summit disclosed that the new name of the body was Organization of African First Ladies for Development, OAFLAD.
Before the February 11 re-branding, the body was known as the Organisation of African First Ladies against HIV/AIDS, OAFLA.
A new logo was also unveiled along with the new name.
The change of name and phase is to help broaden the scope of its activities beyond HIV/AIDS.
