  1. Developing AIDS care in Zimbabwe : a case for residential community centres ?

    Article - En anglais

    New support services are needed as the AIDS epidemic escalates.

    Home care has been the cornerstone of new developments in Zimbabwe and the southern Africa region, essentially resource-strapped countries.

    However, while home care has many benefits, levels of coverage are often low and many patients at some phase of their disease need more than their home can provide, even with access to support services.

    Hospital admission is often not a viable option and the need may arise for some form of respite or hospice community centre to provide residential care.

    This option is debated and potential benefits and pitfalls are explored.
