Botswana AIDS Conference Summaries and Discussion Now Available


We would like to take this opportunity to share with you some of the 
exciting new developments in our electronic discussion group Pro-
CAARE, the Program for Collaboration Against AIDS and Related Epidem-

Recently, the SATELLIFE and Harvard AIDS Institute team was expanded 
to include a new partner, Health and Development Networks (HDN). Over 
the last four years, HDN staff has accumulated a wealth of experience 
in the on-site coverage and reporting of HIV/AIDS conferences. HDN 
has sent electronic reports to ProCAARE from the 1st SADC Conference 
on Community Home Based Care (CHBC) held on March 5th-8th, 2001 in 
Gaborone, Botswana, hosted by the Botswana Ministry of Health 
AIDS/STD Unit. The theme of the conference is "Sharing Responsibili-
ties for Quality Care".

The conference is intended to provide a forum for CHBC service pro-
viders to share their experiences and strategic information on care, 
as well as provide them with the opportunity to identify gaps in ca-
pacity building in the continuum of care. HDN has recruited a team of 
key correspondents from South Africa, Uganda, Botswana and Ghana to 
provide coverage on the conference proceedings and highlights.

We invite you to view the conference summary and post-conference dis-
