Burkina Voluntary Counseling and Testing

In the Piela and Mahadaga communities of Burkina Faso, the HOPE for AIDS team is working to provide free confidential and voluntary testing in established medical centers. Along with testing, the trained volunteers provide pre and post test counseling to individuals looking for more information on how to prevent HIV and how to stay healthy while living with HIV. Medical care is offered as well as pastoral care from the local church. This program covers the cost of medicines to treat opportunistic diseases in up to 40 HIV positive clients per year in each rural medical center. A third counseling and testing center is under construction in the town of Fada N’Gourma.
