Description

Volunteer Honduras


https://www.abroaderview.org/programs/hiv-awareness/honduras-project-awareness

In recent years, Honduras has experienced a rapid increase in HIV infections, accounting for nearly 60 percent of all cases reported in Central America.

Roughly 80 percent of all reported cases are attributable to heterosexual transmission, and studies indicate that between 1 and 4 percent of pregnant women have been infected with the virus. Volunteers in this project will be involved in various care and support activities.

Volunteer activities will include counselling, including prevention counselling and the design and use of complementary IEC (information, education, and communication) materials; working in diagnosis and treatment of minor opportunistic infections and palliative care; referring patients in some cases to public or private sources of more sophisticated care, including the diagnosis and treatment of TB and sexually transmitted infections and anti-retroviral therapy, including prevention of mother-to-child transmission; and working in IEC activities to reduce the stigma of being HIV-positive and combat discrimination. An intermediate level of Spanish is required to participate in this project.
