Construction Begins on Swaziland's First Pediatric AIDS Center

January 18, 2005

On Thursday, Prime Minister Themba Dlamini welcomed the start of construction of Swaziland's first pediatric HIV/AIDS center. Funded by a grant from the New York-based pharmaceutical firm Bristol-Myers Squibb, the center is modeled on a pioneering facility in Botswana. The center will be linked to other pediatric AIDS facilities worldwide, including the Botswana clinic, run by Texas-based Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative. UN figures estimate that 39 percent of pregnant women in Swaziland are HIV-positive, one of the highest rates in the world.
