Excerpt
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY This study investigated the experiences and impact of primary caregivers caring for family members living with HIVIAIDS or other chronic illnesses at home in three districts of Botswana. In particular, the focus was on the impact of caregiving by older women and young girls. Botswana has one of the highest rates for HIVIAIDS in the world and hospitals lack the capacity to care for the large volume of HIVIAIDS cases. Therefore, the government initiated a comprehensive community home-based care (CHBC) Programme. In some communities HIVIAIDS patients, and others with chronic illnesses, are now being cared for at home with the assistance of CHBC and family members.
