Africa update 

SBAAG members are to get an update on the group’s work at the St Francis Hospital in Zambia.

The speaker at the Scottish Borders African Aids Group will be Dorothy Logie, who recently visited the hospital with a Borders General Hospital (BGH) team – the hospitals are twinned. The group was set up in memory of her husband, who died from Aids after a needle-stick accident while working with sufferers in Africa.

SBAAG has supported a number of other projects in sub-Saharan Africa which help those infected and affected by HIV/Aids.

Dr Logie will be speaking at the SBAAG agm at 2pm on November 4, in the BGH Chaplaincy Centre. SBAAG invites anyone interested to attend. For further call SBAAG’s secretary on 01573 224753.
