On Friday October 21, Executive Director August Burns and Senior Clinical Officer Ellen Starr departed for the Kilimanjaro Region of Tanzania. They are currently in the process of meeting with the Association of Kilimanjaro Specialty Coffee Growers (Kilicafe), the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and the Tanzania Ministry of Health to finalize plans for launching our new program in this region in January 2012.
Grounds for Health field staff Dr. Annah Kichambati has been in Moshi for a few weeks, making connections in advance of our arrival. Over the coming days, Ellen and August plan to spend some time with Annah, further developing her materials for use in training community health workers in the region.
