Who We Are

 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.


“ANECCA’s mission is to improve access to quality and comprehensive HIV prevention, care, treatment and support services for children and adolescents  integrated within the broader maternal and child health framework.”

The Structure of ANECCA

The structure of ANECCA consists of members, a Board of Directors and Secretariat.

At country level the activities of ANECCA are coordinated and advocated for by a country focal person, and there are currently 22 Country Chapters. 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.

However limited the resources, there is always something that can be done for an individual Child!
