Challenge

India has the third largest population infected by HIV in the world, with the maximum burden falling among key populations within India. While several vertical programs for HIV/AIDS exist, the preventive and primary health care systems are weak, fragmented, and not customer centric. The system is also inadequately adapted to meet the dual burden of diseases due to COVID pandemic. Freedom Foundation started focusing on OVC in the context of HIV/AIDS way back in 1996.

Solution

The foundation has several hundreds of children registered with the organization; the foundation reaches out to approx. 150 children annually. The Foundation has specialized facilities at Bangalore and Hyderabad that care for these children. The residential care program aims to provide a protected residential environment, wholesome nutrition, healthcare, education & livelihood to HIV infected orphaned children. The HIV +ve community children and their care takers are also taken care of.

Long-Term Impact

The Foundation's specialized facilities at Bangalore and Hyderabad care for HIV positive abandoned orphans.The residential care program aims to provide a protected residential environment, wholesome nutrition, healthcare, education & livelihood to HIV infected orphaned children enhancing both the longevity & quality of life, starting an independent life and productive citizens of the community. The orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) with HIV are one of the worst affected in the community.
