Group plans Aids resource centre
By NATION Correspondent

The Aga Khan Development Network will soon establish an Aids resource centre in East Africa.

The centre will assist staff members and communities in health, education and commercial sectors in addressing the Aids pandemic, the Aga Khan Foundation (East Africa) regional chief executive officer, Mr Arif Necky, said yesterday.

Speaking in Nairobi, Mr Necky said the network would involve rural communities, especially in the Coast Province, schools, staff and their families in the programme.

He said this during the opening of a two-day AKDN human resource managers training workshop on Aids at the Norfolk Hotel, Nairobi.

The workshop is being facilitated by trainers from the Kenya HIV/Aids Business Council.
