The City of Durres in Albania joined the Fast Track Cities Initiative: the Mayor signed the Paris Declaration

The Municipality of the City of Durres has taken an important decision by joining the international Fast Track Cities (FTC) initiative and signing the Paris Declaration. This step aims to effectively counteract the spread of HIV/AIDS and to support related activities and partnerships.

The Mayor of the City of Durres, Emiriana Sako, with over 12 years of experience in governance, signed the Paris Declaration. Over the years, she has held various positions in the municipality of Durres, from the Department of Planning and Spatial Development to the Deputy Mayor.

The choice of the city of Durres, the second largest in Albania after the capital Tirana, is not accidental. Its geographical location as a border city makes it particularly vulnerable to the spread of HIV/AIDS, especially in light of sex tourism. This represents a serious problem that requires immediate intervention and cooperation from both local authorities and the public.

Furthermore, it is worth mentioning that the Mayor of Kolonji, Mr. Erion Isai, has also previously signed the Paris Declaration, which is another important step for Albania in the fight against HIV/AIDS. This fact underscores the country’s overall positive direction in the fight against the epidemics and its determination to take coordinated action to prevent further spread of HIV/AIDS and support communities.
