In August, GEMINI launched a new concept of increasing awareness about HIV/Aids. The idea was to get as many people as we could to get tested for HIV using mobile VCT. The result was overwhelming!!
But now one month later, we are being forced to recruit more VCT counsellors!! In the first week of September, we had 413 people inquiring about the mobile VCT, with our personnel testing 167.
In the second week, we tested 204 clients, third week: 254 and this week: 197.
Mobile VCT seeks to reach out to marginalized communities and provide them with services, condoms, social support and spiritual care.
We are now planning to increase our efficiency by introducing Moonlight VCT where we will reach out to underserved clients, especially commercial sex workers, truck drivers and other hard-to-reach clients.
As usual, we have all our supporters and donors to thank for all our work.
Please keep up the splendid work!!
