The first regional Southern African conference on home care for persons with HIV took place March 5-8, 2001 in Gabarone, Botswana. Internet reports, written by correspondents from South Africa, Uganda, Botswana, and Ghana are available at: www.healthnet.org/programs/procaare-hma/procaare.200103/threads.html#00006.

The reporting was organized by Health & Development Networks, an organization "to mobilize a more effective response to HIV/AIDS and other health-and-development-related issues by improving information, communication, and the quality of debate." HDNET, which has offices in the Republic of Ireland and in South Africa, has hosted AIDS email lists and other online information for many years.
