A thirteen-man research fund management and advisory board has been inaugurated to manage the COA FS Research Fund in Accra.
Speaking at the launching of The COA FS Research Fund, The Executive President of The Center of Awareness Global Peace Mission, Prof. Dr. Samuel Ato Duncan said that it has become urgent for the world to help support and finance the worthy cause of finding a permanent cure for HIV/AIDS and many chronic diseases.
“Today, a new day has come. Rally behind me and let’s fight for a HIV-free world. The fight against HIV/AIDS will not be successful unless we stand together to direct attention and resources towards researches aiming at a permanent cure of HIV/AIDS. It is possible! Who says it’s not! The whole world was created out of nothing by God so why can’t we stop a small virus like HIV? Let us be more serious. HIV/AIDS can be cured. ”Prof.Dr. Duncan exclaimed.
Prof.Dr. Duncan pointed out that his quest for finding the cure for HIV/AIDS is not for his personal or monetary gain but for the permanent freedom for all persons living with HIV/AIDS across the world. He added that the formula he discovered thirteen years ago has shown that it has the potential cure and that an independent research conducted by The Center leaves no doubt that HIV/AIDS can be combatted and cured.
He said he believes that if The Center assembles credible researchers to conduct more researches based on international standards and gets the right equipment for producing the drug the world will be the best for it and urged the board members to provide quality work and a successful implementation of the research.
Prof. Duncan revealed that he has spent a total amount of US$20,000,000 on research since 30th November, 2005 and charged the board members to endeavour to bring their assignment to fruition.
