ARVS SAVED ME AND MY BABY!

By Pasquine Ogunsanya | Project Leader

HOW LAURA AND HER BABY GOT HEALTHY AGAIN THROUGH GOOD INFORMATION AND QUALITY HIV SERVICES INCLUDING ANTI RETROVIRAL TREATMENT FROM ALIVE MEDICAL SERVICES

My name is Laura, I live in Kibuli, Uganda and I am a 47-year-old with 5 children. I joined Alive Medical Services in 2010 when I had just given birth. Before then, I got tested in Owino Market where I work and this is when I was receiving antenatal care. One of my colleagues, Susan, at the market got concerned about my wellbeing and asked me what was going on. I confided in her and shared that I was HIV positive but not on ARVS.

She just looked at me with a smile, and said “Laura nange ndi ku ddagala” meaning” Laura, I am also on treatment”!  That statement changed my life! I realised that instead of thinking I am a victim, I could also resume ARVS and be well.  I realised I have to take responsibility by facing HIV, understanding it, and dealing with it by taking the ARVS.

Susan advised me to come to Alive Medical Services (AMS) where she gets her treatment from and we have been taking ARVS from AMs and are health now. 

Thank you, Alive Medical Services, for the love, care and support you give all of us. We are all treated equally. Every health worker I have come across treats us with love, patience, they respond to all our questions and consultations, and they work on us faster. I don’t usually take a lot of time when I am at AMS. My family and I are living happy and healthy lives. Thank you so much, may God bless you in wealth AMS. Thank you.”
