As the AIDS pandemic spreads, the already stretched Malawian health system is unable to cope, with 70% of hospital wards filled with HIV patients. Hospitals are turning HIV sufferers away. Some have family, some have no one. Families generally do not know what to do for these patients. SIMaid has established a home-based care program in 6 communities, where volunteers make regular visits to the sick and offer health advice to families.
