Blogging from Swaziland

By July 11, 2011 January 28th, 2015 No Comments

Emma Wallis, a final year medical student at the University of Leeds, has volunteered for Saving Lives: she’s arriving in Swaziland this week to learn more about the fight against HIV in a country particularly hard hit by the infection, and will be blogging her experiences for us here on the site. She’ll be working at a hospital in the country where upwards of 70% of the inpatients are HIV positive; the prevalence rate in the wider population, meanwhile, is estimated to be 38.6%, while it is estimated that 30-40,000 people will have died in Swaziland of HIV between 2000 and 2015.

Emma will also be volunteering with the Family Life Association of Swaziland, taking part in their community clinics in and around Manzini. Stay tuned in our Saving Lives International area for more …
