Twenty-40% of people in South Africa’s northern-most rural province of Limpopo are HIV-positive and the delivery of basic services severely lacking. In response, one Dutch doctor and his wife, a nurse -- Hugo and Liesje Tempelman -- started a clinic to get people in the Elandsdoorn community healthy so that they could deliver their own services. After more than 17 years of improving the health of people in this area, the Ndlovu Care Group has proved that HIV is not a death sentence but a capacity-builder.
