Hope

 

AIDS is the worst epidemic in human history. Every country in the world have citizens infected with the HIV virus leading to AIDS. Since the epidemic was identified over 25 years ago, over 60 million people have been infected, 20 million have died and 14 million children have been orphaned. 28.5 million people living in Southern Africa are infected. In some countries, we talk about 20-35 % of the adult population being infected. These are only a few of the horrible figures surrounding this pandemic. Every project in Humana People to People feel the consequences of the epidemic, and it is a priority task at every project to work to stop the spreading of the epidemic and care for the people infected.

In 1996, Humana People to People started HOPE Centers, specifically working to fight AIDS. Today there are 10 HOPE Centers in Angola, Mozambique, Zambia, Malawi and Namibia. Each of them have a number of smaller HOPE Stations placed around as satellites.

From the HOPE Center, the project operates in three main lines: Health Services including Voluntary Counseling and Testing, Outreach Programs and Opinion Forming Activities. The people around the HOPE Center are organized around these activities. In Health Services, the HOPE Center facilitates HIV testing, combined with the necessary pre- and post-test counseling. The Centers promote the local health structures and link up with them in case of opportunistic diseases such as TB, and promote ARV treatment and adherence to treatments. Some HOPE Centers have own testing facilities, while others refer to and cooperate with other test centers.

The Outreach Programs include positive living clubs, which are supporting people living with HIV, lessons in home based care and organization of volunteers to carry out home based care, lessons in nutrition and establishment of nutrition gardens, support for orphans and their caregivers, and much more – all needed in the fight against AIDS and in dealing with the consequences of the AIDS epidemic. The HOPE projects perform Opinion Forming Activities by speaking up about HIV/AIDS in public, through the National AIDS Councils, and by having an extensive cooperation with other organizations and institutions, such as churches and schools, on local as well as on national level.

You can directly take part in the fight against HIV & AIDS by volunteering at a HOPE project.
