About

Our volunteers accompany local community caregivers as they visit patients across Livingstone.  Most of these patients suffer from serious illnesses such as HIV TB or Malaria.  The aim of Home Based Care (HBC) is providing comfort, education and treatment adherence advice to members of the community with little to no access to clinics or hospitals.
