Mount Kilimanjaro rises 19,000 feet into the crystal blue skies over Kilimanjaro National Park in Tanzania. The name Kilimanjaro is derived from Swahili and means “shining mountain.”

The dormant volcano has three volcanic cones, Kibo, Mawenzi and Shira. Nicknamed “the Roof of Africa,” it is the tallest mountain on the continent.

Since 2003, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) has provided HIV prevention, care and treatment, and prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) services in Tanzania.
