The Angaza Zaidi program aims to address the issue of HIV/AIDS in Tanzania. As stressed by president Jakaya Kikwete, one of the main issues is testing – if people know their status, the government can help them and everyone can prevent new infections. Apparently over 5 million people have been tested in Tanzania since 2007, making it one of the world’s leading testing countries.
It is good to see that our programs are aligning with those of AMREF (African Medical and Research Foundation) and that testing is becoming a huge priority in Tanzania. Hopefully the Angaza Zaidi program and AIDSTanzania can work together in the future.
