Botswana, Tanzania: Family Health International Plans AIDS Project

October 16, 2006

Durham-based Family Health International, a nonprofit group targeting STDs, received grants of $31.6 million from the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief to fund two projects in Africa. Aimed at reducing HIV/AIDS infections among African youth, the group will receive $25 million for work in Tanzania with influential adults to convince young people to either abstain from or delay sex, or, if they are in a relationship, to remain faithful and reduce the number of sex partners. In Botswana, FHI will receive $6.6 million to support parents and guardians in their efforts to teach 10- to 17-year-olds skills that will lead to healthy choices and reduce HIV infections. The two countries have some of the world's highest HIV infection rates.
