ABSTRACT
The article examines the role of volunteers in providing care and support services for people with HIV/AIDS in Victoria. It states that in the year before the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), a client of the Victorian AIDS Council's (VAC) Community Support Program died each week and volunteer care teams provided the chance for people to live as long as possible at home. The author remarks that oftentimes, it is the volunteer who has presented as most consistent participant in the care and support of the patients.
