Muchoneta Chiparawasha has brought her baby Tadiwanashe, 18 months old, to the therapeutic feeding clinic in MSF’s Overspill clinic in Epworth, an urban settlement adjacent to the capital Harare of Zimbabwe. “My son was refusing any other food than breast milk and he was beginning to develop kwashiorkor. My family advised me to come here and now he is getting better.”.With 14.3 per cent prevalence rate (UNAIDS 2009), Zimbabwe is one of the countries worst affected by the worldwide HIV/AIDS epidemic. Since 2007, MSF has been running an HIV/AIDS project in Epworth. In August 2011, MSF had 12,864 patients under care in both of its clinics there.
