Throughout the summer, my internship and research highlighted the inextricable link between an explicitly health-related issue (HIV/AIDS) and development. In partnship with the African Evangelistic Enterprise, I conducted interviews and engaged in fieldwork that allowed me to explore the dynamics of the recent Tanzanian government policy of home-based care for HIV/AIDS victims. I also gained an understanding of how well NGO’s are able to meet the needs of HIV/AIDS victims and their families who are forced to care for them at home.
