• Image of £5 Give-a-Gift Card & Voucher: Pays For One Person to Get Tested For HIV

This gift voucher comes with a card describing the project below:

In northern Malawi, the number of people affected by HIV and AIDS is extremely high. In remote rural areas, there are no health clinics where people can get tested to find out their status. But since 2009, Temwa has been running a mobile testing centre.

It is important for people to know their status. This knowledge will help to reduce the spread of HIV and improve the health of those living with HIV and AIDS.

When people discover they are HIV positive, Temwa then provides counselling and support services. This support will help them to start their own business to provide income for their families, improve their diet and encourage them to access
anti-retroviral drugs from the hospital. This help will ultimately prolong their lives.
