MSF provides free HIV care in rural health clinics. decentralized from district hospitals, in order to create access to regular medical care for patients in rural and underserviced remote areas, such as those surrounding Murambinda, in the eastern Buhera district of Zimbabwe. An MSF nurse takes a sample of blood from an HIV+ patient, for monitoring the health of the patient's immune system, and the effectiveness of their anti-retroviral treatment. This monitoring of blood samples is done every 3-6 months.
