Abbott Fund to Build First Pediatric HIV/AIDS Clinic in Tanzania
Date:8/29/2008

al. "We expect the new center of excellence to accelerate our ability to make progress against our national treatment goals for children with HIV." The NACP goal is to have children comprise 20 percent of all people on treatment in Tanzania, 88,000 children, by 2010.
