A delegation of Harvard School of Public Health friends and faculty – including HSPH Dean Julio Frenk and Dean for Academic Affairs David Hunter – visited HSPH programs in Tanzania and Botswana recently, meeting with government officials in both countries and learning more about the School’s longstanding efforts around AIDS and nutrition in East and Southern Africa.

During the visit, Frenk and Hunter and a small number of HSPH faculty met privately with Tanzania’s President Jakaya Kikwete. The entire delegation also participated in a special ceremony at the Amtulabhai Clinic and Mnazi Mmoja Center in Dar es Salaam, to celebrate a building project that will house a new clinic and training center to be developed jointly by several Tanzanian institutions with assistance from the U.S. government and HSPH.
