Home And Community-Based Care

TB HIV Care’s home and community-based care (HCBC) services consist of interventions that focus on wellness, health promotion, prevention of ill health and self-management support to empower clients to take care of their own health at home.

The HCBC programme consists of 296 community healthcare workers (CHWs) and 17 CBS supervisors who all work in six substructures in the City of Cape Metropolitan Municipality.

Drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB) is an ever-growing concern globally and a big part of the HCBC programme includes DR-TB counselling, linkage to care and adherence support.
