Community Field Officers ‘Making Namibia A Healthy Nation’

In a guest post in the ONE Blog, the CDC describes the work of two Development Aid from People to People (DAPP) field officers in Namibia, where they travel to rural communities to conduct HIV/AIDS counseling and testing. “Through this work they have established strong links between health facilities and communities, and strengthened systems for follow-up care. Their compassion, dedication, and determination are driven by a deep calling and commitment. Truly at the front line of the battle against HIV/AIDS, they are contributing to saving thousands of lives and to making Namibia a healthy nation” (1/7).
