Title: Catholic AIDS Action (CAA), Namibia
Creator: Catholic AIDS Action
Abstract: Catholic AIDS Action (CAA) was founded in 1998 through the Namibian Catholic Bishops Conference as Namibia's first church-based response to the country's HIV /AIDS crisis. It has since grown to be one of the largest NGO responding to AIDS in Namibia, currently operating 14 offices in 9 of the 13 political regions. Working closely with local parishes and faith communities, the work and mission of Catholic AIDS Action has four principal focuses: home-based palliative care and counselling, youth education and prevention, care and support to orphans and vulnerable children, and voluntary counselling and testing.
