The late Benjamin William Mkapa in 2001 launched the first National Policy on HIV/AIDS believing that Tanzania must fight the HIV/AIDS Pandemic with everything it has got, beginning by preventing new HIV infections targeting about 85% of sexually active population that was still free from HIV/AIDS.
