The aim of the HIV/AIDS program is to decrease the spread of HIV through raising awareness and education, increasing access to homecare, and providing emotional support to those affected by HIV/AIDS within the community. Volunteers have the opportunity to work in a community HIV/AIDS organization to assist with homecare visits to HIV positive people, and educate and counsel community and school groups and individuals. In an effort to combat this deadly disease, many hospitals and local NGOS are presently running HIV/AIDS testing, counseling, and awareness campaigns in Kenya.
