Tanzanian NGOs network against HIV/AIDS

Dar es Salaam- Tanzania (PANA) -- Tanzanian NGOs fighting against HIV/AIDS have formed an umbrella body, the Tanzania Network of HIV/AIDS Service Organisations (TANASO), to coordinate their campaign against the scourge.
TANASO plans to support an International Partnership Against AIDS (IPAA) project in Africa, which seeks to mobilise collective action involving the government, civil society, private sector, donors and the UN.
Tanzania, which counts some 1.
7 million HIV/AIDS cases, is among six countries pioneering the IPAA project in Africa.
Apart from bringing together stakeholders in the fight against AIDS, TANASO would also seek to improve the quality of life for people living with HIV/AIDS, as well as promote consensus and a harmonisation of services offered by NGOs and the government.
In the past four years, Tanzanian NGOs fighting the disease have come under fire for embezzling donor funds intended for AIDS victims.
