Description

Zambia faces a dual epidemic of HIV and tuberculosis. The needs of the people affected include not only medical and nursing care, but material, social, psychological and spiritual support. This video depicts an innovative home care programme in the townships of Zambia's copperbelt. The key to its success is the role played by over 500 volunteers--mostly women--who are supported by community nurses and hosital services. From the Strategies for Hope Series.
