Life became difficult for Joyce when she lost her husband to AIDS two years back as she is the sole caregiver for five children (four her own and one nephew).

The goal of our pediatric HIV care program is to strengthen the community by equipping families with tools to take care of their HIV+ children. Family members of children enrolled are provided with training in caring for an HIV+ child, and education in HIV prevention. This leads to an improvement in the health of the children, prevention of HIV, and reduction in stigma associated with HIV.
