Homeopathy shall become accessible for all

Swaziland Homeopathy Project

Among Swazi women in the reproductive age, more than 40% are HIV-positive. Many of their children live with the virus as well. However, most of them have not developed AIDS yet. This project tries to assist people to maintain a good level of health, assure that people eat healthy food and get enough rest and that they pay attention to signals from their bodies such as a flu etc. Appropriate help can often come from homeopathic treatment of minor ailments and keep people threatened by their HIV-status healthy.
Sahee supports rural clinics that are held regularly in various rural areas throughout Swaziland. Women who are doing handicraft in their homes for the fair-trade-organizations Tintsaba and Gone Rural meet every three weeks to get new materials and sell their artifacts. Now we are able to offer free consultation and medication from two professional homeopaths to these women and their children.
Both homeopaths are aware of the fact that AIDS can be controlled only by Anti-Retroviral medication and are in contact with hospitals and medical doctors to ensure that patients get the proper care.
In addition, sahee initiated a scientific study to examine the effects of the homeopathic treatment. The results of this study will be examined by sahee's in one year's time and depending on the results the project could be supported for an extended period.
