THANDIZANI COMMUNITY BASED HIV/AIDS PREVENTION AND CARE
Thandizani HIV/AIDS Prevention and care Project began in September 1999 when Lundazi district was experiencing an increasing number of clients testing positive to HIV resulting in a tremendous need for community awareness and involvement to be able to fight the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Since 1999 Thandizani has grown to be the lead agency in the Eastern Province with a network of over 100 Community Care Groups.
