Promoting health and fighting diseases
“Through the engagement of every single person, cooperation with existing infrastructures and the community at large, HOPE Humana forges crucial links with government interventions at national and local level”
Huge progress has been made in the fight against major diseases such as HIV and AIDS and TB over the past 30 years. Thanks to all the advances made in understanding, treating and preventing the disease, Botswana government has invested in treatment and people on ARV treatment can live and thrive for longer years. 67% of people who are HIV positive are on treatment. Botswana is facing 10, 000 new HIV infections every year, new TB infections and a steep rise in lifestyle diseases. HPP believes that each and every individual is responsible for his or her own health. However, we acknowledge that the challenges for some communities to carry that responsibility are huge. All HPP projects are addressing health and wellbeing of the people.
