HIV & AIDS Clinical Fellowship Program

HIV/AIDS Clinical Fellowship Program

View slideshow In 2006 The Wilson Foundation created a partnership with The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center to send U.S.-trained physicians to the Waterberg region to help expand the delivery of medical care to area children and their families. Through a generous private donation, UT Southwestern provides stipends for participating physicians, who spend three months or more working in the Waterberg Welfare Society clinic and in the mobile clinic. The fellowship enables the physicians to expand their knowledge and experience treating HIV/AIDS, malnutrition, tuberculosis and other opportunistic diseases, while also providing much-needed medical care in this vastly underserved community.

According to Dr. Lana Lee, a fellowship participant, "I have learned a great deal working in the Waterberg Welfare Society clinic, and the hands-on clinical experience has been invaluable to me as a physician. More importantly, though, I have the satisfaction of knowing that I have helped save lives and help restore people to being healthy, productive members of the community."

The Wilson Foundation is grateful for the support and partnership of UT Southwestern and actively seeks additional partners to help expand this and other programs.

How You Can Help

There are many ways you can support our efforts to bring help and hope to the children of South Africa. While we receive many generous offers to donate products, supplies and other items, the cost to ship these items to South Africa is often prohibitive. Therefore, we encourage monetary donations to help meet local needs.
