As part of NELA's home based services, trained voulounteers & staff provide nutritional & psychosocial support to people living with HIV, orphans, vulnerable children and affected families. Community based activities such as: discussion groups, provide support to the affected & infected people and raise awareness of stigmatization & discrimination. Nela has trained and supported community outreach workers to work with particularly vulnerable populations such as youth, sex workers & PLWA's. NELA also runs a short stay care center that provides basic primary health services for PLWA's that need hospital care but can't access it due to stigma & discrimination. A support group within its center provides psychosocial support.


NELA provides technical & financial support; training & mentoring to non-governmental & faith based organizations, to help them deliver quality HIV/AIDS services.

NELA raises communities' understanding of HIV and other related issues and works with PLWA's to prevent onward transmission. It trains peer councellors to promote safer sexual behaviour, organises community awareness events and produces, information, education and communication materials.
