Summary
Burnout has long been identified as a crucial issue in HIV care and support; yet there is relatively little known about what measures can be taken to prevent or mitigate it. This document looks at how carer burnout can be avoided. It focuses on the approach used by a faith-based organization, IMCARES, Mumbai, India, to care for their staff and volunteers employed in their programmes and as carers in the community. Their strategy and practice may provide useful lessons in caring for carers for both secular and faith-based organizations working with people living with and affected by HIV.
