Tanzanian Opposition Takes AIDS Test Public

January 14, 2002

In Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, opposition leaders last week were tested for HIV in an effort to encourage others to do the same. They also promised to disclose their results. Civic United Front National Chair Ibrahim Lipumba and Secretary-General Seif Shariff Ahmed were tested at the Muhumbili hospital, which has the country's largest number of AIDS referrals. The National AIDS Control Council and the Ministry of Health reported that by the end of 2000, close to 2 million people over age 15 were living with AIDS in Tanzania's mainland.
