The mission of the Flying Needle Project (FNP) is to provide complementary alternative healthcare to the vulnerable populations of South Africa and African Refugees including those infected with HIV. Acupuncturists and doctors of Chinese Medicine, registered with the AHPCSA, provide the treatments. The clinic offers services to those with few or no resources. It incorporates complementary healing measures along with sustained support. FNP aims to work in conjunction with conventional medicine and anti retro-viral (ARVs) medications to provide integrative, holistic treatment. It is important that the patients have access to complementary therapies that work in conjunction with the use of ARVs. FNP concentrates on providing a high quality of complementary healthcare to HIV positive patients to enable them to lead healthier and longer lives.
