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-

key correspondents from South Africa, Uganda, Botswana and Ghana to
provide coverage on the conference proceedings and highlights.
