Swiss Aids Care International
Inspired by this philosophy, Swiss AIDS pioneer Prof. Ruedi Lüthy travelled to Zimbabwe in southern Africa. Around 1.4 million people are HIV-positive, and many of them urgently need life-saving treatment. Working under difficult conditions, he set up an outpatient clinic and a training centre in the capital, Harare. With great success: Newlands Clinic now provides comprehensive care for some 5,500 patients. In the nearby training centre, Ruedi Lüthy and his local team also train around 500 health care workers and doctors every year in the management of HIV.
