Kidzpositive was a PATA (Paediatric AIDS Treatment for Africa) partner in a most successful fourth PATA forum held in Kigali, Rwanda during the last week of November 2008. The meeting was attended by 44 teams from 19 Sub-Saharan countries. A total of 170 delegates and a teaching faculty met to discuss the headline topics of 'Care of the Very Young Infant' and 'Nutrition in HIV'. The full conference programme is available at www.teampata.org.
A highlight of the three day meeting was a visit to the Partners in Health (www.pih.org) hospital and Training Centre (illustrated in the pictures) at Rwinkwavu, a rural village 160 kilometres from Kigali. Teams visited all facilities at the hospital and were treated to an inspirational address by Paul Farmer, co-founder of Partners in Health
