    The establishment of TADEPA

    TADEPA was established by the national staff who were employed by Medicins Du Monde (MDM) an internal organisation from Paris, France. This organization came to Kagera after the outbreak of HIV in Kagera,Tanzania.

    Medicine Du Monde was conducting HIV/ AIDS Prevention and Care in Kagera since 1992. Apart from HIV/ AIDS Prevention and care actvities, MDM built the capacity of the staff in dealing with HIV/ AIDS issues through national, international workshops, attending national and international conferences. For this reason, the local staff gained a very wide experience in the field of HIV/ AIDS Prevention and Care.

    When MDM was planning to close its services in Kagera, the local staff came up with an idea of establishing alocal NGO which should make a continuation of MDM activities. The idea was fully supported by MDM, which we term a "Mother NGO." of TADEPA.

    TADEPA was established and officially registered as an NGO in June 1997, under the Trusteeship Ordinance. With the support from MDM,TADEPA started to implement its own programmes in 2001. MDM continued to support TADEPA as adonor and provided frequent technical advices until when MDM closed its offices in Kagera Region.

    TADEPA appreciates the great support from MDM as it bought a house for TADEPA, the present offices of TADEPA and furnished the offices including computers and communication systems. Donated two(2) Toyota Vehicles and electric generators.
