At the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, Dr. Moeti led WHO’s “3 by 5” Initiative in the African Region, an Initiative that helped establish systems for the provision of antiretroviral therapy in countries and resulted in a significant increase in the number of HIV-positive individuals accessing antiretroviral drugs.

Prior to joining WHO, Dr. Moeti worked with UNAIDS as the Team Leader of the Africa and Middle East Desk in Geneva, with UNICEF as a Regional Advisor, and with Botswana’s Ministry of Health in various capacities.
