When it comes to diseases, we intervene at three basic levels:
- Prevention: We carry out awareness building on the existence, and ways of preventing contraction of these diseases. We carry out school programs and initiate door to door campaigns in communities and the distribution of flyers and the raising of posters with captivating messages on HIV/AIDS.
- Care: Here, we assist patients to access health care and proper treatment.
- Support: We help patients leaving with these diseases and facilitate their access to treatment. We also act as liaison between health facilities and patients.
