One of the challenges facing health professionals who are involved in managing CHBC programme in the AFRO Region today is how to deliver quality care. The Regional Office of the WHO has therefore charged the WHOCC for Nursing and Midwifery at the University of Botswana, with the responsibility of focusing on CHBC for the duration of the last period of re-designation and to develop a model on CHBC that can be used as a guide for intervention in Botswana and all other countries in the AFRO Region. Towards this end, the Centre embarked on a project to develop and test the expected model. Based on the project, this paper proposes a CHBC Model to serve as an organizing framework for understanding the issues related to CHBC in the AFRO Region and the delivery of good quality CHBC interventions. This model consists of major elements and concepts, which influence the effectiveness of the CHBC interventions. These include: public policy on home based care, the nature of the available structures and processes, the development of personal skills, provision of a supportive environment, the development of partnership or linkages and an effective performance management system. The paper also discusses the indices for determining a good quality of life for persons on home based care.
