(Tanzania) HIV Center
In Tanzania the Mara Region has the highest HIV rate. In the Mara region the Rorya district is highest in HIV. In Rorya the Kowak village has the highest HIV rate (17 %).
The HIV Center first opened in 2009 and it currently has 2,500 patients. As it keeps growing every year, more space for patients, medical staff, medicine and supplies are needed. There are over 100 children that are HIV positive at the Center.
Under the direction of Father James Conard, M.M., Maryknoll will construct an HIV specialization unit at Kowak Hospital. Your generous gift will double the size of the much needed HIV Center.
