American rower and African President team up to fight AIDS

obiang of equatorial guinea victor mooneyPresident H.E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatorial Guinea joined Victor Mooney of Queens last week in the global fight against AIDS. Mooney presented the Head of State with a OraQuick ADVANCE® Rapid HIV-1/2 Antibody Test that detects antibodies to HIV-1 and HIV-2 in 20 minutes, which the government plans to use in their country.

Later this year, Mooney will make his fourth attempt to row across the Atlantic Ocean in a Brazilian built ocean rowboat christened the Spirit of Malabo that was sponsored by the Republic of Equatorial Guinea. Mooney continued his sea trials with a row from Orient Point to the Hamptons. The Head of State is in New York attending the United Nations General Assembly.
