The project Group is the children who are affected by HIV/AIDS parents The total population of the AIDS cases found in Chennai city is 8485. Out of this population 6363 male and 2122 female are affected with AIDS. . In recent survey 141 male and 46 female are affected with HIV/AIDS. This shows that there is gradual increasing in the affected victims of HIV/AIDS.
Nearly 2.1 million people in India are living with HIV. People living with HIV/AIDS face stigma and discrimination in a variety of settings including households, the community and workplaces. Establishing an HIV/AIDS management policy, mainstreaming HIV can access testing and counselling and making post-exposure prophylaxis available to staff have all been suggested as ways of reducing stigma and discrimination among healthcare workers in India
The work of the Project is three folds - Children, Families and the communities.Children are identified to check their health status and were given uninterrupted educational support. We provide their Vocational Guidance, Character building, Socialization, Annual Get-together and Leadership Training. We assist them in placement and do necessary follow-up.Periodical heath check-up are organised to detect early childhood diseases and treatment is given as per analysis.
The Government Hospital authorities should extend their full support to the families in their diagnosis, treatment, provision of medicines and counseling. There will be a visible reduction in the spread of HIV in the areas where we work. The people know the adverse effect of this disease and they change their behavior. Children get educational support and inturn get job opportunities thereby enabling the families to live a normal life and the entire society gets uplifted.
