STAR has remained a constant source of support to persons with HIV and their families, providing comprehensive assistance since 1986. STAR’s work has benefitted more than 170 people at its Lighthouse facility, which aims to provide a family environment for residents, including men, women and children. In addition, STAR offers support throughout the island to persons living with HIV by way of confidential counselling and personal caregivers visiting homes, the hospital and hospices.
