HIV/AIDS and environment assessment
Michael Ramaano and Leigh Price, team members from the Kalahari Conservation Society's project, Status Assessement of the Relationship between HIV and AIDS and the Environment, visited HOORC's Library today at the end of a two week field trip that covered Chobe, Moremi Game Reserve and the Okavango Sub-District. The project, being carried out by Zimbabwean organizations SafAIDS and Shanduko, is looking at health services provided to national parks staff, safari camp and Ministry of Agriculture staff in remote areas of Ngamiland, seeking to identify best practices and how these can be replicated in other sectors. The project represents an initial planning phase for a transboundary system that will improve health care delivery to people affected by HIV/AIDS in the context of healthy ecosystems in the Okavango Delta area. In HOORC's Library, you can find The Impact Of HIV/AIDS In CBNRM In Botswana : The Case Of Ngamiland by B.N. Ngwenya, F.C. Potts And O.T. Thakadu.
