About Linda Swallow
Since April 2009, I have been working for the SIM/MTW HIV/AIDS Care and Treatment project in the slums of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We care for ~350 HIV affected families with a multi-faceted approach. We also are piloting a small TB active case finding project. I am an Adult NP by background, with all of my NP work prior to coming to Ethiopia in medical and/or radiation oncology. I have traveled extensively on one and two week mission trips prior to coming to Ethiopia.
