HOPE to Home
HOPE Cape Town’s HOPE to Home project is a critical intervention.
The biggest emerging threat to HIV positive patients receiving ARV’s is the lack of compliance and the resulting resistance to available antiretroviral drugs.
At HOPE Cape Town we recognise the importance of addressing the obstacles to Adherence.
Retaining patients in care in the community, after being discharged from hospital, remains a challenge and initial integration of patients into their community health care facilities plays a major role in this retention.
We are helping to facilitate the smooth transition between admission and reporting for care at the local community facility, by preparing patients for discharge, confirming appointments, visiting them at home and accompanying them to the local facility, where possible.
We find that at least 300 children require this service per month.
