Understanding and Living with AIDS Project

To provide training courses to the volunteers in 8 villages located around Rattananurak Rehabilitation Centre (which belongs to the Communicable Disease Control Department, Miinistry of Public Health), Muang District, Lampang, in order to increase their knowledge on AIDS. Emphasis will be made on how to understand and live with AIDS patients in their community.

Home Health Care Project

Since the hospitals will not be able to admit all AIDS patients, the Project Medical Team of Sansai District Hospital, who are collaborators of the Foundation's Foster Parents Project, will then visit at their homes those people who have AIDS or are HIV infected and especially the relatives, fathers, or mothers of the children under the Foster Parents Project.
