RULIV has mapped HIV and home-based care in the Amathole District Municipality and developed a database of initiatives for the district. The database enables the HIV and Aids organisations together with government departments at both provincial and national levels to analyse the attributes and characteristics of community initiatives. This in turn allowed authorities and role players to make informed and effective decisions around the provision of back-up support and the value of and the importance of such services. The provincial roll-out of the project will commence once funding has been secured.
