Development Approaches

Many organisations are guided by welfare approach while providing their services. During the session: 'when is it welfare and when is it development'; it was interesting that there were arguments that organisations need to move from welfare approach towards development approach. However, we learnt a lesson that there is nothing wrong with welfare approach. 

HIV/AIDS challenges in South Africa

Adherence to HIV/AIDS and TB treatment is still a challenge for patients with HIV and TB. From the research done, patients are well educated about HIV/AIDS issues. They know that is important to take their ARTs on time. But due to some challenges they stop taking them. However, people with TB are not well educated about TB treatment and they stop taking medication. Issue of concern is that much effort need to be directed towards education regarding HIV/AIDs and TB treatment.
