In November 2004, PIDC was officially initiated into the BIPAI network at their annual networking meeting in Gaborone, Botswana. In 2005, BIPAI signed memoranda of understanding with Ministry of Health, Mulago Hospital and Makerere University Department of Paediatrics and child health to support the expansion of paediatric and adolescent HIV services in Uganda.
