Additional information
Additional information: 
DREAM mainly supports existing health centres, which are establishing medical departments for HIV-positive patients. Majority of the centres are small units in public or ecclesiastical hospitals in the rural areas. For reasons of clarity the centres are not explicitly listed here. Due to the concept of sustainability and ownership we do not deploy European stuff in the day to day work.
