Challenge

Each month about 80 new patients are diagnosed with HIV in BelaBela. Children become orphaned if their parents fall away and families are separated. Families face poverty and malnutrition and are vulnerable to all infectious diseases if parents loose their jobs. HIV positive children receive treatment together with their parents.

Solution

HAPG provides medical and psychological care and treatment to infected people. HIV specialists are treating patients in the community.Community care workers assist until parents are able to cope again. Counselling is done to give emotional support.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide treatment for 30 new adults per month. Families consist usually of 5 to 7 people. Patients are trained for 1 year to strengthen adherence and stay lifelong on their treatment. Less poverty! Fewer orphans!
