    A deligation of six United States senators visited Arusha on Wednesday to see first-hand the impact of development projects funded by the American people in Tanzania.
    US Ambassador to Tanzania - Alfonso E. Lenhardt.

    The team comprised Senators Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, John Thune of South Dakota, John Barrasso of Wyoming, Mike Johanns of Nebraska, Kay Hagan of North Carolina, and Richard Burr of North Carolina.
    According to a press statement availed to 'The Guardian' yesterday by the US embassy, the delegation was accompanied by Ambassador Alfonso E. Lenhardt and Melinda Gates of the US-based Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
    The statement said the delegation also visited Ghana and South Africa, and would meet with the United States Africa Command (AFRICOM) officials in Stuttgart, Germany, following their trip to Africa.
    Led by Senator Lindsey Graham from South Carolina, the delegation visited the Selian Agricultural Research Station, which has received support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The station conducts research on breeding of hybrid varieties of maize to improve yields and to strengthen resistance to drought and disease.
    The delegation met with local farmers who have benefited from the improved varieties, and discussed the challenges still facing farmers in the region.
    The delegation also visited Ngarenaro Health Centre in Arusha, which receives support from private and US government organizations, including from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the President's Malaria Initiative (PMI), and the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).
    The clinic provides health services and education to more than 200,000 people in the area, including a full range of prenatal, labour and delivery, and family planning services. The delegation's visit focused on the clinic's Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV/Aids programme.
    The United States Senate is the upper house of the bicameral legislature of the United States, and, together with the United States House of Representatives, comprises the United States Congress.
