"health, which is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity, is a fundamental human right"

Back to the Islands
Just a quick update... John and I have arrived back in Mbita, on the coast of Lake Victoria. We will be working on a project with the International Medical Corps which seeks to extend their HIV/AIDS program on the mainland to the islands. We will be taking weeklong excursions from island to island to start making contact with beach leaders and administer surveys on HIV attitudes and access to care. We may have a tough time getting good internet access, so pictures and updates may be coming slow over the next months. The best way to get a hold of us will be cell phone, and packages can still be sent through Nairobi (see below). Hope all is well with everyone.
