Seven Year-old Brian Tom playing in Epworth, Zimbabwe at dusk. Brian Tom (7) is a patient enrolled in the MSF HIV/AIDS project in Epworth, an urban settlement adjacent to the capital Harare of Zimbabwe. “The doctor gives me pills that I have to take in the afternoon and the evening. They are white and blue and they taste and I don’t know what they are for. In school, I like music and singing and I want to be a pilot when I grow up.”.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.
