Care and Support
Care and support forms an integral part of WAAF (plus) programs. Groups targeted are the chronically ill, orphans and vulnerable children and extreme marginalized persons. Chronically ill patients are primarily supported by building the capacity of their families to take care of them at home (home based care). Orphans and vulnerable children are assisted by the clinic’s orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) program to allow children to enroll and attend school for a minimum period of 3 years.
We increase the capacity of primary care givers as well as persons living with HIV (PLHIV) including those with HIV/TB co infection, by providing income generating activities that enhance self sufficiency and solidarity. Psychosocial as well as nutritional support for PLHIV, TB infected, the poor and their families is also ensured through WAAF’s care and support programs.
