    INTRODUCTION

    During the course of a needs assessment on the care and support for children infected by HIV/AIDS conducted by HFVCM community health division during 2009 March, its was revealed that most children presented with opportunistic infections and had not received appropriate medical care.

    Some showed growth malnutrition and caregivers lacked adequate knowledge and skills to care for these sick and infected children. It was noted that the sick children does not get enough medical care in the health units because of lack of counseling skills on the part of the health workers.

    Among the twelve (12) health units in the rural areas of Kasese district especially in mountains and lake regions, only three (3) regions had only one (1) staff skilled in caring after infected children. It was found that most parents and caregivers preferred looking after children at home to their long stay with the sickness and also care takers having to look after other family members and feeding for their families.

    Many complained of abject poverty at staying long at hospitals away from home becomes more expensive. HFVCM home based care program has been looked at as an ideal solution to address the about concerns.

    PROBLEM STATEMENT

    HIV/AIDS disease has been associated with shame and negative stigma resulting into many infected children and Adults as whole.

    Those who suffer from the disease are frequently with out social support, financial means, abilities including health insurance; those caregivers and family members have little and no ideal on how to care for HIV/AIDS children victims provides need to pay more attention.

    Our government health centers in our district are not stocked with medical supplies, manpower and drugs to match, the increasing number of HIV/AIDS patients. In such situation patients can not afford to buy the needed medicines and this leads to quick death.

    The number of children infected with HIV/AIDS is highly increasing. Information searched by HFVCM community health service shows that an average of 32 children dies every year of HIV/AIDS in 21 sub-counties of Kasese district.

    This needs empowering rural communities with knowledge and skills about HIV/AIDS care and offering of home visits. Home based care program is a good ideal to improve on the quality of life.

    This high increase of HIV/AIDS infection in our district came about by the great war that hit our area (ADF) in 1996 because of running up and down and luck of help during war times, girls and women were forced to get married to armed personnel’s sexual abuse increased, rape and other sexual harassment so this caused a high virus transmission.

    Our district Kasese being a boarder district with DRC and having lots of trading activities practiced at the boarder, trailer drivers and traders from various places of the continent led to high increase of sexual activities, so this led many people into the HIV/AIDS infection.

    Polygamy also in our district and yet having little income generating activities has also been quickest way of making AIDS disease rampant in our area.

    Large families are valued and yet the risk of having many children together presents areas physical danger not only to women themselves but also to their families.

    Most of the rural households are poor that they can not get good or regular meals as required and because of this poorness people can not afford the buy standard drugs or get appropriate medical treatment and this fails them at least get or enjoy a high quality life.

    The communities in Kasese district have a pressing problem of high increase in the number of children infected by HIV/AIDS who in most cases have not received health attention. A group of the children have been orphans and looked for by their poor relatives and others are being cared for by their sick parents.
