Mr. Pursley will also lead Rx for Africa's efforts to find US and European partners who will use Rx for Africa's low cost of manufacturing in Ethiopia to their competitive advantage. "When Rx for Africa, Inc.'s wholly-owned subsidiary's manufacturing facilities are approved by the US FDA, it should be relatively easy to find a US marketing partner in the States. Rx's cost of goods are spectacularly low and give it a competitive advantage over even India and China."

Dr. Mulugetta Bezzabeh, Chairman and CEO of Rx for Africa, Inc. commented, "We are excited about working with Mr. Pursley. His background in marketing drugs for HIV-AIDS and other diseases that have a major impact in Africa will give us tremendous insight into our task ahead."

Rx for Africa plans a conference call with investors and analysts on June 1, 2009, when Dr. Bezzabeh and Mr. Pursley will update investors on their efforts.
