Summary

Globally, every minute a baby is born with HIV (UNICEF,2010). The Indian Government has estimated that 3.5% of the 2.5 million HIV+ individuals are children <15 years of age. This project aims to work with more than 100 orphan HIV+ children from remote villages of India providing comprehensive care including support for education, travel to the hospital, supplementary nutrition and counseling to child and family and livelihood support to single HIV+ parent which will help sustain the family.

Challenge

Maharashtra state has the second highest HIV prevalence state in India , with an estimated 420,000 cases .Osmanabad district in Maharashtra is proven to be the most vulnerable district to HIV infections. Stigma, discrimination or the inability of the caregivers/single parents to look after orphan HIV+ children leaves them neglected and abandoned. The orphaned children's caregivers are now essentially aging grandparents, some of who cannot even afford full day meal for the children.

Solution

PRIDE India provides comprehensive care and support to the children to help them combat the effects of the disease. We provide supplementary nutrition, medical care and the required counseling. The staff undertakes regular visits to the families to ensure adherence to treatment, establish linkages with the government for social entitlement benefits ,rehabilitate the children to care homes for those not having a congenial environment and provide livelihood support to single HIV+ mothers.

Long-Term Impact

More than 100 orphan children affected with HIV living in the remote villages of Osmanabad will receive support helping increase their lifespan and fight the disease in a stronger way.
