Mission and Vision

An estimated 2.2 million of the 32 million people living in Kenya are currently infected with HIV and around 500 die each day due to the consequences of the disease. HIV makes people more vulnerable to the TB agent - most of those infected with the virus therefore, also suffer from TB. TB is curable with a combination of three to five antibiotics and the treatment takes about six to eight months. The project aims to: have on-site examination, diagnosis and treatment of TB and HIV/AIDS; provide support of patients through personal care, advice and nursing tips for relatives;increase the number and efficiency of both HIV and TB testing; and provide treatment of HIV-affected persons with modern, life-prolonging AIDS medicines
