Care and Support

Biire provides care and support for people living with HIV /AIDS. We provide a continuum of comprehensive care comprising of nursing care, access to drugs, counseling and psycho-social support through home-based care without any discrimination.

HIV / AIDS has a long incubation period, hence people living with HIV require long, continuous treatment. Hospital care in such situations may not be feasible, therefore emphasis on an on-going home-based care are of absolute necessity in such cases.

Our care and support services are tailored according to the individual needs of the people infected. Ultimately, we help People Living with HIV / AIDS to lead healthy and productive lives.
