Humana People to People is helping to fight the spread of major infectious, communicable and prevalent diseases through three community mobilization for prevention programs. These programs are Total Control of the Epidemic (TCE), HOPE Humana, and Community Health Agents. Humana People to People also works to get better links between health services and the people and to offer educative awareness information, act as a referral agent for people and the medical centers, care for the terminally ill and support to those in need.
TCE is conducted through a door-to-door outreach by dedicated Field Officers and community volunteers called Passionates. TCE in each country works diligently to increase HIV/AIDS awareness, decrease stigma and discrimination, mobilize for HIV testing, provide basic counseling for both HIV risk reduction planning and sexual behavior change, conduct Home Based HIV tests, mobilize for ARV uptake and provide emotional support for children and adults affected by HIV, TB and other related diseases. TCE has helped to increase the number of people tested for HIV, the number of pregnant women receiving prenatal and prevention of mother-to-child transmission care, the number of orphans referred for social services, and the number of HIV positive people receiving care. The TCE model is also being used to raise awareness and mobilize for TB and malaria prevention.
HOPE Humana is a project to reduce the spread of HIV and AIDS and to offer care and support to those affected. The project plays an important role in reigniting the quality of life where human dignity has been thwarted, bringing hope, standing in solidarity with the infected and the affected. HOPE Humana establishes a center in the community as the base for actions to stop HIV/AIDS and TB and related diseases and to support people and communities affected.
Community Health Agents is a program, which promotes universal health awareness and mobilization to prevent the most common diseases and link people to health services. People in remote communities far from health centers are engaged by the program through community based mobilizers. Visits are made to families and provided with information and support for the prevention and treatment of malaria, HIV/AIDS, TB and other common diseases. Community mobilizers give advice on family planning and pay special attention to pregnant women and children under the age of 5. HIV counseling and testing is encouraged as well as prenatal consultations, and mosquito nets and condoms are distributed with careful instructions on how to use them.
