Organization Description:
Mwaiseni Home based Care is a thriving organization that has gained momentum in the Luanshya area on the Copperbelt. Our center is booming with opportunities to increase peer educator services and community integration. On site is a HCT Clinic and Laboratory, A Counseling Centre, a Basic School is underway, an Income Generation Sewing Project, A Garden Project, Poultry Project, After-care services for OVC’s, an Early Childhood Development Project and the GOLD Peer Education Program. All Projects are fully staffed with skilled and qualified workers.

Mwaiseni HBC has over the years built capacity in managing HIV/AIDS programs, i.e. mitigation and prevention programs. Mwaiseni Home Based Care began as an NGO in February 2002 when the first 22 volunteers commenced their one week intensive training program which was followed by 3 months of supervised practical training before graduation.

Mwaiseni has also been addressing the issue of TB. Community volunteers were trained in DOTs therapy as an integral part of home based care. Seeing that malaria was a challenge in our catchment area, Mwaiseni engaged peer education with drama performance in community sensitization and distribution of treated mosquito nets to PLWHA.
