Vimbai Chitani playing "hop, skip and jump" with her siblings at home. Vimbai Chitani (15) is a patient enrolled in the MSF HIV/AIDS project in Epworth, an urban settlement adjacent to the capital Harare of Zimbabwe. “In 2007 I was very ill. I had rashes all over my body and my whole body ached. A week after I started medication I was already feeling much better. Now, I am anxious that my mother may send me to my grandmother in the countryside as we cannot afford my school anymore.”.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.
