Baylor College of Medicine International Pediatric AIDS Initiative at Texas Children’s Hospital expands to Papua New Guinea

Yesterday, jointly with Texas Children’s Hospital, the Baylor College of Medicine Pediatric AIDS Initiative announced their efforts to improve global health have expanded with a new program in Papua New Guinea. The program is being supported by a $3.1 million, two-year grant from ExxonMobil and the other co-venturers of the PNG LNG Project to Texas Children’s Hospital.

The partnership was officially announced Monday in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea with a special dedication ceremony that included representatives of the Government of PNG, Texas Children’s Hospital and Baylor, ExxonMobil, and the local medical institutions.
