Read Seth Kandel’s article, “‘The FACES of Kenya,” was published in the November 2010 edition of Infectious Disease Special Edition. Kandel writes:
… The long-term goal for FACES is to make Kenya self-sufficient to the point where their presence is no longer necessary. The program already has seen great success with efforts to increase accessibility to HIV treatment. In the Suba District, where HIV prevalence was an estimated 30% of the population when FACES first arrived, there are now 18 sites offering comprehensive HIV services. Overall, FACES currently oversees 62 HIV care sites, with a cumulative enrollment of 87,703 patients since the organization began working in Kenya. But with only one-third of the adult population in Kenya tested for HIV infection, there is still plenty of work to do.
