The Eastern and Southern Africa Centre of International Parasite Control (ESACIPAC) was established in May 2001 with the goal of coordinating activities on school health based parasite control in the Eastern & Southern Africa region under the framework of the Global Parasite Control Initiative (also called Hashimoto initiative).
