Thanks for this. My partner is studying for a PhD in anthropology and is currently in the field (at this very moment, she's working in Bondo District Hospital, Nyanza Province, Kenya) collecting field work. She is looking at caring responses to HIV, so I'm sure she will find this post to be an interesting resource.

The pictures are wonderful, but the entries lack a certain something...they made my eyes glaze over. Too many acronyms, too many statistics, not enough humanity. Scientific detatchment, perhaps?

I, for one, am blown away by the number of people they manage to treat at such a small facility with so little money and staff hours. The staff that are there must be working massive amounts of overtime hours. I sent a donation, I hope they get a new autoclave soon.
