Roger “Rasta” Msuya, Translator & Trainee Homeopath
Roger was one of the first people Jeremy met on arriving in Tanzania and he has worked with him as translator every since. From the Kilimanjaro region himself, Roger is an essential member of the team and a great support to resident and visiting international volunteers due to his overall understanding of the outreach programme and case taking in an African setting.

Patience Jahende, Homeopath
Patience, a Kenyan homeopath, joined HHA in January 2013 on completion of her training with Kenya School of Integrated Medicine.

She has become an integral member of the project and is loved by all.

Simon is one of the first homeopaths whose homeopathic training was sponsored by HHA. A local to our region, he completed his education at Kenya School of Integrated Medicine in August 2014 and returned to work with us.

Our Treatment Policy
HHA practitioners always advise patients to continue taking ARVs and never interfere with conventional medical treatment.
Homeopathy works in an integrated and complementary way with conventional medicine.
We work closely with local doctors and nurses who refer many patients to HHA.
AIDS in Africa
It’s one of the worst pandemics the world has ever seen. We now know that homeopathy helps ease the suffering of those living with this disease. It’s safe, non-toxic and affordable and it stimulates people’s innate ability to heal. Thanks to homeopathy, our patients are able to live more comfortably, with greater energy and stamina. This also means they are able to reclaim their livelihoods. We do not claim to cure AIDS. We do claim we can dramatically improve people’s quality of life.

Homeopathy for Health in Africa’s story began in 2005, when our founder Jeremy Sherr began practicing homeopathy in Tanzania during his twice yearly visits. Having grown up in South Africa, Jeremy loved Africa and was deeply moved by the suffering of its people. He had already had positive experiences working with AIDS patients in other parts of the world and believed that homeopathy could be of great help to the people of Africa, who were bearing the full brunt of the disease.
In 2008, Jeremy and Camilla Sherr moved with their young family to northern Tanzania. Since that time the scope of HHA has widened dramatically.
