CDC Responds to HIV Tanzania
Published on Jul 24, 2012 by CDCStreamingHealth
Since PEPFAR was launched in 2004 AIDS-related deaths in Tanzania have dropped dramatically from 120,000 per year to 86, 000 in 2009, and the number of new HIV infections has dropped from 130, 000 to 100, 00 during that same timeframe. CDC continues to work with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare along with local stakeholders to ensure that Tanzanians living with HIV receive the quality and comprehensive care and treatment services they need. The 360,000 individuals currently on ART, and the 800+ care and treatment clinics supported by CDC, are a testament to this commitment. Through this united effort, Tanzania is brought one step closer to achieving the common goal of an HIV-free generation.
