Through education 20,000 people have a greater understanding of how HIV is transmitted and what effective measures to prevent transmission are. This is important in not only preventing the disease but also in giving people the confidence to care for people living with AIDS without fear of becoming infected. 56 people living with AIDS have been provided with chickens or dairy goats and trained in how to raise these animals and use the eggs, milk, and meat to improve their diet. The program boasts many accomplishments: increased awareness, increase access to food, increased understanding of nutrition, greater availability of counseling and testing, and greater availability of healthcare.
