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.
