Challenge

The main problems to be addressed by this project are HIV/AIDS and poverty. The beneficiaries of the project are HIV-positive and poor people. The organisation chose to implement its programmes and projects in the five regions because according to the Namibian Surveillance Report on the 2014 National HIV Sentinel Survey, they are still among the most affected by HIV/AIDS, with an average HIV prevalence rate of 17.9 %. The five regions are also among the poorest and populous regions of Namibia.

Solution

This project will help solve these problems by providing high-quality community home-based care to alleviate suffering, including carrying out home visits for actual physical care and psychosocial support to clients, distributing painkillers, multivitamins, and condoms to HIV-positive people and the community and promoting community health, including personal and environmental hygiene, access to safe drinking water & basic sanitation as well as food production, availability and security.

Long-Term Impact

The expected results of the project, in terms of quality, include over 10,000 people in the five regions provided with basic community home-based care services through the Community Home-Based Programme of the organisation until they reach health facilities. In essence, the role of the organisation will be to provide physical and psychological pain relief and refer patients from the community to the nearest health facility on time before their health deteriorates, thereby improving wellbeing.
