Delegates From Africa Tour Houston’s Exemplary AIDS/HIV Model Organization
Bering Omega Community Services
Over the years Bering Omega Community Services has hosted delegates and health officials from numerous countries around the world. Recently international delegates from Namibia and South Africa visited our Dental and Hospice programs. These leaders came to learn about Bering Omega’s effective and innovative model for HIV/AIDS care and how to apply similar practices in their communities in Africa.
Four officials from Namibia sponsored by the country’s President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the largest effort by any nation to combat a single disease, visited Bering Omega to learn more about its progressive efforts in treating individuals with HIV/AIDS. Delegates represented the Namibian Ministries of Health & Social Services, Ministries of Gender Equality & Child Welfare, and the Nawa Life Trust organization.
South African leaders came to explore Bering Omega’s education, treatment, care, and innovative techniques at the community grassroots level. These leaders were personally invited by The Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program.
