TANZANIA: Canadian cash for AIDS care and treatment

[This report does not necessarily reflect the views of the United Nations]

JOHANNESBURG, 21 September (PLUSNEWS) - Canadian Minister of International Cooperation Aileen Carroll has pledged US $4.5 million on behalf of Canada's International Development Agency (CIDA) to tackle HIV/AIDS in Tanzania.

The Minister is visiting the East African country to inspect CIDA-funded projects, which focus on HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and care.

"Canada is committed to assisting African countries gain access to more affordable essential drugs," Carroll said during the funding announcement.

In a statement CIDA said Tanzania was selected as one of the agency's countries of focus because of its commitment to democratic development and ability to use aid effectively.
