Hawaii: HIV Contract Awarded to East-West Center
August 29, 2007
Family Health International has awarded Honolulu's East-West Center a $98,000 contract to provide technical support for Vietnam's HIV national estimates and projections for 2007. The FHI contract also extends an ongoing analysis and advocacy project to Haiphong. Around a decade ago, the center began developing computer models for tracking and projecting HIV's spread. Center-developed software now allows countries throughout Asia-Pacific to analyze local HIV epidemics and develop effective responses.
