What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Since it is very expensive for an HIV/AIDS patient to be admitted in hospital or hospice due to prolonged illness,stigma, discrimination and lack of sufficient food Iseni Tubombele Pamo came up with a Home Based Care program that will provide health care and nutritious food support . This will make the patients take their ARVs on time.
