The AIDS Healthcare Foundation, a US not-for-profit HIV/AIDS care, research and prevention organisation, yesterday opened its third centre for sexually-transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV in Mexico. In partnership with the government, which has unveiled plans to build a network of 51 so-called CAPASITS centres (see related story), the Cancun (Quintana Roo state) clinic joins those currently being run by AHF in Tijuana (since October 2005) and Puerto Vallarta (since November 2006). The AHF is planning to open a fourth clinic later this year in the city of La Paz (Baja California Sur state). The Los Angeles-based group also operates a similar centre in Guatemala, in the city of Quetzaltenango.
