Summary

With the earning capacity of most of the HIV infected parents being almost nil, the life of the children in the families is miserable in India. The children in ART therapy suffer , during class hours and are unable to participate in the class room activities being dizzy. Due to lack of nutrition their resistance to opportunistic infections dwindle dangerously. To fulfill their nutritional needs, we provide Nutritional Kit every month. and their CD4 count increases to become active.

Challenge

Fast dwindling immunity levels among the children infected by HIV is main cause for their physical and mental trauma . Due to unavailability of nutritious food, children infected by HIV become very weak and are unable to be attentive in schools with poor CD4 count. Their parents with HIV themselves, struggle hard being unproductive economically to support.They are at serious risk to all kinds of opportunistic infections. When this need is addressed they will be able to be active in school .

Solution

The children living with HIV are provided the monthly Nutritional Kit package consisting of the protein rich pulses of green peas, pigeon peas, the health drink, dates and they are given cash to purchase 9 litre of milk and 30 eggs per month ( 300 m.l milk and an egg a day) per child. The nutritional supplement rich in all ingredients keep the CD4 count of the children high. The children will be protected from opportunistic infections and they will not feel dizzy in class room.

Long-Term Impact

With the higher CD count and the resultant ability to cope with opportunistic diseases will help them to be attentive in the class rooms and their life expectancy also will increase. The parents of the children living with HIV, also being infected they will be able focus on their own health being relieved of the anxiety about their children. Reduction of external signs of health of 500 children with HIV will also reduce the social stigma attached to the condition in school and outside.
