ACT started in 2002 as an HIV/AIDS project, caring for families impacted by the disease.  Today, ACT still cares for many HIV+ people, but also responds to other public health problems and diseases, like tuberculosis and cervical cancer.  ACT works to strengthen the public health system and partners closely with the health centers in the communities where we work.  ACT monitors the health of the people in the project and ensures that all of its interventions are high impact.
