Dartmouth Medical School receives $1.6 million in AIDS funding

HANOVER, NH -- A national foundation with a mission of supporting programs for children with AIDS made its final grant on Wednesday World AIDS Day with the distribution of $1.6 million to the section of Infectious Disease and International Health at Dartmouth Medical School and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

The money will go to the DARDAR project, a collaboration between Dartmouth Medical School and the Muhimbili University College of Health Sciences in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. According to Gary J. Noel, MD (Dartmouth '77), one of the founders of the Foundation for the Treatment of Children with AIDS (FTCA), this grant allows the decade-old organization to close its doors while ensuring a legacy of continued emphasis on the needs of HIV-infected children throughout the world.

"For 10 years, we have been making grants that directly impacted the lives of HIV-infected children in the U.S," he said. "Happily, during that time, we have seen the incidence of HIV in American children decline steadily. At the same time, the epidemic continues to swell in other parts of the world, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. By turning over our remaining funds to support Dartmouth's efforts in Tanzania, we are supporting a project that holds great promise for growing and serving a community that has been severely affected by the AIDS epidemic."

Noel, a Senior Director for Clinical Research with Johnson & Johnson, was joined for the Wednesday announcement by fellow founding board members Richard R. Grassey, Jr. of Merrill Lynch, and Michael Hirschberg, Esq. of Piper Rudnick LLP. Also attending was John (Launny) Steffens, a Dartmouth alumnus and major financial supporter of FTCA.

The funds were accepted by C. Fordham von Reyn, MD, Chair of the Section of Infectious Disease and International Health at DMS and DHMC. For five years, von Reyn has been principal investigator for the DARDAR project, which focuses on HIV-associated tuberculosis
