Summary

The HIV Counsellor project strives to provide HIV awareness, education and support to patients living with HIV and those who are at high risk. TransCape has four ways in which we tackle the HIV crisis in Nyandeni's rural villages: 1. Clinic counselling 2. Home visits 3. School assemblies and school awareness events 4. Community awareness days. The funds will improve the village gaining knowledge about HIV/AIDS - for both, those that are already affected and those that want to prevent getting it.

Challenge

South Africa is home to the largest HIV epidemic, with 5.6 million people living with HIV. The problem is particularly bad in the rural Eastern Cape, where access to education and health resources are limited. There is a lack of knowledge about HIV/AIDS and lack of resources to reach people that are in need of information.

Solution

Clinic counselling: We offer counselling to patients at the clinic and answer questions about HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis. An HIV test can be done at the clinic. Home visits: We visit households in deep rural areas that are difficult to reach to bring the people HIV education and counselling. School assemblies: We educate the students about HIV/AIDS, teenage pregnancy, contraceptives and drug and alcohol abuse. Community Awareness Days: We provide the participants with resources (eg pamphlets).

Long-Term Impact

What we already achieved: -ARV Treatment, down referral and infrastructure development -Construction of 5 clinics -Upgrade and infrastructure maintenance at Canzibe Hospital -Establishment of 21 HIV support groups -Establishment of 5 HBC groups with offices and registered as non-profit organizations with 3 accessing Social Development grants taking care of orphans, bed ridden, critically ill, frail and elderly people. -HIV awareness programs with over 130.000 participants -Over 5000 HIV testings
