Circle of Love-Medical tests for HIV+ Cameroonians

by Education Fights Aids (EFA) International
Sep 17, 2012

160

160 CD4 tests.

160 trips to the medical clinic.

Because of the Circle of Love, the members of the youth empowerment network of Education Fights AIDS have, collectively, gotten 160 CD4 count tests since we began this effort!

The CD4 count test is used to evaluate the progression of HIV and its effects on the immune system.  In Cameroon, the CD4 count test is also used to determine eligibility for the antiviral programs.  

Of course, the test itself and transportation to the clinic can be prohibitively expensive.  The Circle of Love program helps to assure that our members are as healthy as they can be, no matter what their financial situation or level of hardship.  

We think it is fairly simple. The youth empowerment network works endlessly to support its members. They educate each other, they encourage each other, and they care for each other. But, without some financial help, their critical medical care would be out of reach.

The Circle of Love fills a need.  Our members are healthier because of it.

Thank you!
