The Hlokomela Programme is anchored in the Hoedspruit Agricultural and Conservation communities adjacent to the Kruger National Park, South Africa. Hlokomela now has three dedicated HIV Councelling and Testing (HCT) teams working in the Greater Kruger to Canyons area.
Hlokomela seeks to contribute to the reduction of HIV prevalence and the impact of AIDS among commercial farm workers and their families through an integrated programme of prevention, treatment and care...
Research conducted in January 2008 on 10 farms in the Hoedspruit area confirmed the seriousness of the HIV epidemic in the area. It also found farm workers highly vulnerable to HIV infection.
A recent independent study found the overwhelming majority of farm workers trust the confidentiality of the services offered through the Hlokomela project.
