Tanzania Jubilee Hope HIV Support Groups 2017

A word from the Vine Trust...

Emily is fundraising in of aid Vine Trust's Jubilee Hope Medical Programme on Lake Victoria, Tanzania.

Jubilee Hope Medical Expeditions enable volunteers to make a real and lasting difference to communities living on the islands and shore of Lake Victoria. Working in partnership with our in-country clinical team, volunteers provide primary healthcare services to communities living in severe poverty, aboard our fully-equipped medical vessel, Jubilee Hope. With 50,000 consultations held annually, and a specialist HIV Testing and treatment programme, Vine Trust Medical Expeditions provide free, life-changing clinical testing, treatment and education to communities who would otherwise have little or no access to basic healthcare.

Donations made through this page will contribute towards the maintenance and development of the Jubilee Hope Medical Programme.

Many thanks for supporting Vine Trust – together we are helping to support vulnerable communities through effective and sustainable development.

Fundraising Activity

It is estimated that around 20-30% of people in fishing communities on Lake Victoria are living with HIV compared to a national average of 5.3%. This significantly higher infection rate is down to a multifaceted and interconnected mix of cultural, social and economic factors. Vine Trust's Jubilee Hope Medical Programme is launching a 5 year strategy, working with national partners to provide clinical and preventive services. Our aim is that any funds raised in 2017 will be allocated specifically towards launching a new HIV support group on the island of Goziba and sustaining an existing support group on the island of Ikuza. As an additional part of this project we hope to: - Commence enterprise initiatives - Train HIV community health workers - Provide HIV education materials - Provide HIV prevention supplies

How I'm raising money

A combination of preventative and clinical services. As well as the introduction of CD4 testing and antiretroviral treatment, a variety of community-based initiatives are also required which engage community leaders, establish support groups and train health champions in an attempt to respond to the deep-rooted behaviours and attitudes which significantly contribute to the ongoing spread of HIV on the islands.

    The HIV Positive women of the Islands are so strong but are suffering so much because of their low status. Giving them a route to independence changes everything in their lives and their children's lives. That is the future of their country. How little it
