Ambassador Malac Commemorates World Health Day at Baylor-Uganda

In honor of World Health Day, Ambassador Deborah Malac today visited the Baylor College of Medicine-Uganda Paediatric Center of Excellence (COE). Funded by the U.S. Government through CDC, Baylor-Uganda leads the way in HIV care and treatment in children and is a prime example of our commitment to improving Ugandans’ health.

The U.S. Government has invested more than $83 million in Baylor-Uganda over the past five years, and the results are impressive. 26% of all HIV positive children in Uganda receive care from Baylor, with the COE supporting 23 districts in providing comprehensive services.
