Items required

Please note Karen has now completed the elective (as of 27/08/17) and this page is for historical use only and therefore no items are actually required.

This page shows some of the items & products that Karen will require for her BSc Mental Health nursing elective in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.

Due to the sad and high prevalence of HIV / AIDS the TOP PRIORITY now is a HIV PEP KIT - this will ensure Karen gets rapid treatment to prevent HIV taking a hold. Whilst Karen does and will continue to practive high levels of infection control, cross contamination & infection from needle stick, deliberate or accidental  infection by others is always a risk. The HIV PEP kit does not negate the risk but it does provide a high degree of rapid mitigation and hopefully a high degree of minimising chances of full blown HIV taking hold.

The kit is £200 - if you are able to help on this then please contact Karen to discuss. This item was sourced and no longer required :-)

If you are able to help by either buying the item  or by donating the cost of the item, via PayPal or GoFundMe, then that would be a massive help. and sincerely appreciated.

This page will be constantly updated to reflect items which have been kindly supplied or to add more items as they become known or necessary.

Below are the individual items but the complete list can be viewed here.

Items with a GREEN background have been donated, thank you ever so much, and are no longer required and as you will see the response and generosity thus far has been truly mind blowing!
