Following a two-year agreement, between Sida and Plan Sweden, starting in 2004 and later amended with no-cost extensions up to Dec 2007, Hope for African Children Initiative (HACI) has been the recipient of a grant of SEK 18,000,000. The purpose of the grant has been to support the HACI strategic objectives for 2005-2010 (a draft of the strategy was already available in 2004). HACI's four core objectives are: (1) Building awareness and reducing the stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS; (2) Extending the life of the parent-child relationship; (3) Encouraging positive living with HIV positive people and preparing families for transition; (4) Ensuring the future of the child.
