About NACC



The National AIDS Control Committee (NACC) is the body responsible for coordinating and managing the National AIDS Control Program throughout the country, in collaboration with government departments and national and international partners. The essential mission of the NACC is to provide a national framework for action, to broaden the national response to the epidemic and to coordinate the implementation of AIDS control activities.


The fight against AIDS in Cameroon began in 1986 with the establishment of the National AIDS Control Programme (NACP).
The National AIDS Control Committee (NACC) was established in 1998 to coordinate, monitor and manage the multisectoral AIDS control programme.
