Improved drug adherance promotes Food Security among Households of PLHA in Masaka Uganda
By Charles Matovu Lwanga - Deputy Director / Human Resource Manager
Follow up of the HIV and AIDS clients in their respective homes has revealed a positive relationship between improved drug adherence and food security. Through the routine visits made by the community workers and the expert clients it has been observed that drug adherence is steadily improving hence people regaining their normal health and returning to former nature of work which include farming and in particular growing special foods like vegetables and other nutritious foods that will boost their immunity.It is therefore imperative to note that it is a collective effort by all the community members to support the PLHA by encouraging them to take their medicines if were to respond to HIV and AIDS plus its impacts. It is also worth noting that the clinical outcomes are promising since the intensive follow began.
