Challenge

Poor patients who cant bribe healthworkers in Ugandan are neglected to death or left to practicing students thus errors in diagnosis, treatment causing deaths. Kiconco is a victim, had no AIDS but was wrongly tested, took ARVS for 6 years and proved late when her body continued damaged. This is a threat, 1000s of Ugandans may be on ARVS too yet AIDS free like Kiconco! Healthworkers lack Patients' rights training thus mishandle/mistreat patients.

Solution

This Project will popularize Kiconco's case in media for well-wishers to help her & others patients get treated. Awaken 1000s of people to Re-test HIV and 500 people may discover were wrongly tested or their rights were violated thus seek redress/treatment. We will help 50 patients whose rights were violated by Negligent/Corrupt Health workers so that they face justice and scare others take extra care on Patients. The project will train 200 Health workers in Patients' rights.

Long-Term Impact

Kiconco's case and media awareness of this project will influence Ugandans to test for HIV earlier & always to discover their health status yet many have been fearing to test. Health workers will fear to mistreat/ask bribes from patients aware that the public is alert to report. Government will include patients' rights in health workers' training thus skills to handle/treat patients.
