The home based care (HBC) kits are composed of various products for home based workers to care for people living with HIV/AIDS and for their own protection. An HBC kit usually contains essential products such as painkillers, gloves and bandages.


We can offer a standardized kit, or we can work together to customize the kits to your specific needs. Note that SCMS will determine if the pharmaceutical product on this list meets the regulatory and/or importation requirements of the country of importation/consumption.
