HEALTH

Children who are sick physically or mentally can’t learn, grow and thrive. WWO's care for orphans, including those living with HIV/AIDS, is based on attention to the whole child. Children have scheduled annual well checks, care and treatment. If a child misses an appointment, we know about it and we follow up.

HIV/AIDS Treatment and Training

Since 2003, the treatment and follow-up care of orphans with HIV/AIDS has been a WWO priority in Vietnam and Ethiopia, as has the training of in-country medical professionals by WWO’s volunteer team of pediatric AIDS specialists from Columbia University.
