ANECCA is a regional organization that supports the improvement of the quality of life for women, children, adolescents and young adults in Africa through supporting innovation and augmenting emerging best practices in health.


ANECCA has its headquarters in Kampala Uganda where it is registered as Not for Profit Organization. It has a sub-regional secretariat in Dakar, Senegal.

The African Network for Care of Children Affected by HIV/AIDS (ANECCA) is a network of clinicians and social scientists committed to promoting ways of improving the quality of clinical and non-clinical care of children affected by HIV/AIDS in the Africa region.

ANECCA was established in 2001 to address the growing recognition that children affected by HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa were largely neglected by existing health care systems.
