TAZAMA / NACP seminar day

Dar es Salaam, 19th September, 2008

Three years into the GFATM-funded TAZAMA research programme, we are putting on a special seminar for our partners in the National AIDS Control Programme, summing up the achievements of the last three years, looking forward to the next two years of the project, and preparing for a next phase of work as the monitoring and evaluation arm of the HIV prevention, treatment and care projects that GFATM funds in Tanzania.

The seminar will give us a chance to present some of our recent findings in a non-technical way to local programme managers and policy makers, in contrast to our journal publications and international conference presentations, which are generally aimed mainly at the research community. 

The seminar will start at 8 am on Friday 19th, at the NACP library, the agenda is shown below, and the presentations can be accessed through the web links listed here.
