We work to ensure basic health care is implemented in rural areas and to ensure communities have access to health services.
People living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) account for more than one quarter of the population in Southern Africa. Despite this they often face stigma and discrimination, their voices go unheard and their needs remain unmet.
“The Breaking the Cycle of Vulnerability” programme (funded by the Big Lottery Fund) has enabled us to support people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Swaziland and South Africa to improve support and services.
India: Tribal Communities Access to Healthcare
In the forests of India where tribal communities live, our partner organisations found it difficult to train women as community health volunteers to provide care for rural communities.
We have been working in India with tribal communities, focussing on improving maternal health. Over 400 local women have been trained in rural communities to provide basic health care.
