ROM’s Theory of Change

Holistic model of care
ROM uses a community-based approach and a holistic model of care. The holistic model is a unique approach developed by Reach Out Mbuya Parish HIV/AIDS Initiative that cares for the body, mind, family, and community needs of her clients to restore hope to the hopeless and good health to the sick.

The holistic model of care relies heavily on community-based approaches that emphasize community ownership. ROM strategically has over 49% of its staff drawn from its HIV-positive clients who hail from the catchment population.
