Project Report | Feb 5, 2022

By Dr Pasquine Ogunsanya | Project Leader

Beatrice, a 52 years old beautiful lady, joined AMS in 2009. One night she had taken too much alcohol while hanging out with friends and had a one-night stand with a man but lost contact with him. She had been worried for a couple of months so she decided to take an HIV test.
“I didn’t remember whether we had unprotected sex or not, the only thing I remember up to this day is we met in a bar” Beatrice narrates.
Beatrice had always heard about HIV and assumed that she was well informed and didn't need testing before any sexual encounter. She also thought that one sexual encounter wouldn’t cause a risk of infection. She came to Alive Medical Services to confirm that she was HIV negative
When Beatrice’s HIV test turned positive, she was devastated!
“It was hard for me to imagine that I had to take medication daily for the rest of my life.” Narrated Beatrice.
Alive Medical Services provides free high-quality comprehensive HIV/AIDS services including prevention, care, ARVs and psychosocial support and counselling so Beatrice was helped to understand that with adherence to ARVs and positive mindset she can still live a quality life.
"After counseling, I felt so confident, healed and I was ready to share with my close friends about my HIV status with an intention of raising awareness and helping them learn from my mistake and always avoid drinking too much alcohol so that they may negotiate for safer sex.” Narrated Beatrice.
Beatrice is grateful to Alive Medical Services and its partners like GlobalGiving for restoring hope to life after testing positive for HIV. Access to improved HIV treatments for women like Beatrice encourage them to take them for the best outcomes of their health.
