Friends Women's Association

Description:
Friends Women Association (FWA) has a clinic in Kamenge, a poor section of Bujumbura, for women with HIV/AIDS. Currently it has an active cliental of 120 patients, most who are women. It also serves the usual health needs of the community around the clinic so that it is not stigmatized as only a place for HIV/AIDS positive individuals. In additional to its ongoing services to its clients the program includes AIDS testing, counseling, nutritional support, and patient gatherings.

Current programs:
In order to enhance its present program, the FWA is negotiating with the Government of Burundi to receive a plot in Kamenge to build their own clinic, according to the specifications they need. AGLI plans on helping to build this clinic with a workcamp in July, 2006 (see workcamps).
