CDA Jacobsen’s U.S. Independence Day Reception Speech Tuesday, August 23, 5:00 p.m.

Welcome to this celebration of the 246th anniversary of the independence of the United States of America!

While Covid-19 poses a major challenge to the world, together in Botswana we have made significant progress over the past two and a half years to prevent, detect and treat the disease.
