Changes in life pattern of child
Since the child was admitted in the DESIRE Society ,we are rendering its best for the quality of life . At the time of admission ,she was malnourished and badly required medical attention. Main challenge was to improve her CD 4 count which was found to be very low. She was offered proper counseling, treatment and medicines for opportunistic infections (OIs) by our medical team. She has received round the clock health care and monitoring.
The child was put on ART (Antiretroviral Treatment, a lifesaving drug) immediately after admission to care home. She is also put with a balanced diet as ART has got more side effects. DESIRE Society has put more attention on planned nutritional diet which truly helped this child to continue drug adherence. So this led her to gain physical weight . After these continuous efforts are put by DESIRE, now her health condition is getting stable and heading towards progression.
Consultation for her eye treatment is under process DESIRE Society is working to bring support for the treatment and for the connectivity of the eye hospital in this regard. Extra care by care takers is focused in her case.
