We offer free and confidential HIV Tests to the general public (including our own patients, staff and volunteers)
HAART Readiness Courses
Before starting a patient on the medication we ensure that the patient gets sufficient information to give his informed consent and to understand the vital importance of the antiretroviral treatment for him/her.
The three modules of the HAART Readiness Course are:
Stigma, Disclosure and Positive Living
Basics of HIV and AIDS
HIV and Antiretroviral treatment
We provide free Highly Active Anti-Retroviral Treatment as comprehensive medical care including regular medical examinations, blood monitoring, ongoing prevention or treatment of opportunistic infections, medical and psychosocial counselling and dispensing of the drugs.
Our Therapeutic Counsellors make monthly home visits of our patients on ARV-treatment to ensure that they adhere to the treatment and so to prevent treatment failure. This enables us to discover adverse drug reactions early and to prevent problems.
Support Groups and Peer-Counselling
We have several Support Groups where our HAART Patients meet voluntarily to encourage and support one another and prevent isolation. Some of the members were prepared to become peer counsellors for the adherence monitoring and we are about to give them the necessary training.
Motivation and Income Generation
Our Therapeutic Counsellors motivate and encourage our HAART patients to engage in income generating activities instead of expecting that their families or society would have to provide for them because they are sick.
