      • To provide assistance to selected initiatives with respect to building the capacity of community health clinics and community health workers.
  • Reach (beneficiaries)
    • ICROSS CANADA reaches those most affected by HIV/AIDS in East Africa for example the orphans of AIDS victims, the communities (health clinics) and the surviving extended families.
