FACES Suba, January-March 2012

The conditions in Suba District are challenging: an HIV prevalence in the double digits, and rural conditions with limited transportation options for clients. But the energetic atmosphere within FACES builds tremendous support to face these difficulties. I spent 6 weeks on a clinical elective in Suba, a rural area bordering Lake Victoria. Although I could not visit all 20 FACES-supported facilities, a particular highlight included the mobile boat clinics to Ringiti and Remba Islands. All of the staff’s willingness to share and learn from one another really made it wonderful to be a part of such a hardworking team!
