Abstract

The Kenya National AIDS Control Council (NACC) requested "the development of innovative responses to reduce the impact of the epidemic on communities, social services, and economic productivity," targeting vulnerable groups including caregivers (NACC, 2005, pg. 29). In response to the call of the NACC and the funding opportunities for services provided by PEPFAR, Higher Ground Outreach, Inc. responded to the appeal by reaching out to partner with Faith and Community Based Organizations in Kenya to provide services to HIV/AIDS patients and their caregivers. Building upon this commitment, HGO commissioned a series of HIV/AIDS caregiver focus groups to gain a better understanding of the challenges associated with HIV/AIDS care giving and to develop a plan of action to implement appropriate programs and services.
