Norway will provide $1.6 million to build a regional AIDS council headquarters in Ethiopia to run programs aimed at preventing the spread of disease, the UN Children's Fund said in a statement on Saturday. The number of HIV-positive people in Ethiopia is estimated to be close to 3 million, including 250,000 children under the age of five, the statement said. The major emphasis of the program will be to work with young people as a key resource in mobilizing an expanded and effective response to HIV/AIDS prevention, care and support.
