On behalf of President Obama and the American people, I congratulate the people of the Kingdom of Swaziland on your 48th Independence Day.

I commend the Government of Swaziland for its commitment to the health of its citizens. Health is an issue that touches every citizen of Swaziland, and we are pleased to have a long partnership with the Swazi Government on multiple critical health initiatives, including our shared goal of achieving an AIDS-free generation.

On this special occasion, I offer my best wishes to you and my sincere hopes for a healthy, peaceful, and prosperous future for Swaziland.
