Life and Living Project  


How does it work?
The following strategies are used:
•    Promotion of overall networking.
•    Using available skills and natural resources to facilitate livelihood and food security.
•    Strengthening the health care and HIV/AIDS/TB treatment systems.

What does it change?
Scaling up treatment care and prevention services to enable response to HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria in the target areas.

Why is it relevant?
In 2002, AIDS, Tuberculosis and malaria killed approximately 6 million people a year.  The devastation caused by these 3 pandemics was considered a global emergency.  AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria are still with us and they are still a global threat.  The world is at tipping point:  if the disease is not defeated now the risk is that they will resurge in new and more powerful forms.

What is it about?
The project addresses the alarming and devastating effects of HIV/AIDS/TB in East Africa.  It also contributes to the realization of the human rights, sustainable development as well as the treatment literacy of HIV/AIDS/TB infected and affected members of the target communities through social and economic empowerment, with the objective of promoting social integration of people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS/TB.
