Swaziland gets paediatric HIV/AIDS centre of excellence:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Swaziland's first dedicated paediatric HIV/AIDS centre - the latest in a growing network of clinical excellence centres across Africa - opened this week. The project, a joint initiative between the government and the Baylor College of Medicine (Houston, Texas), with support from pharmaceutical group Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS), aims to increase 11-fold the country's capacity to diagnose and treat HIV in children. These currently number around 16,000, according to UNICEF estimates. The Baylor-BMS partnership in Africa began in Botswana, where a similar centre opened in 2003. Others are being established in Burkina Faso and Uganda, due to open in 2007.
