Home Based Care

Home Based Care

To run this Programme, WOI works in partnership with the Omega Foundation who have over 10 years’ experience in implementing comprehensive care and support projects for people affected by and living with HIV/AIDS in Nyando and Kisumu Districts. Over the past year 2043 individuals have benefited from the Home Based Care Project

Home-based care is a holistic, collaborative effort between the hospital, the family of the patient, and the community to enhance the quality of life of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWAs) and their families. It is comprehensive care across the continuum of care from the health facility through to community/home level. It encompasses clinical care, nursing care, counselling and psycho-spiritual care, and social support.[1]

Through Home Based Care we aim to increase access to basic health services for people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS by bringing services closer to them or giving clear referrals to appropriate services.
