Welcome to all non-Dutch speaking

You have landed on the website
of 'Aandacht voor Aids', which means 'Focus on Aids'.
'Aandacht voor Aids' is the name of a personal campaign.
With this campaign, I am trying to raise funds in order
to significantly and structurally improve the situation
of Aids- and HIV-infected people an children in Ghana,
My name is Cindy Noordermeer.
I am a Dutch dietician and health worker and worked in Ghana as a volunteer
for 2 years. I returned to Holland in May 2005 to start
my Master study International Public Health at the VU
The first half year of my stay,
I have been working in the 'International Health Care
Clinic'. This is a small community hospital in Accra,
the capital of Ghana. The hospital is mainly focused
on treating the poorest people infected with Aids and
For the following 7 months, I
worked on a project in Wa (the capital of the Upper
West Region in the North of Ghana), the aim of which
was and is to write and implement a nutritional guideline
for Aids patients.
For the rest of my stay, I was back in Accra in the
clinic again, and worked on several guidelines in de
field of nutrition, treatment, personal hygiene, etc.
