Support Group for those living positive (HIV Positive)
We have managed to conduct an adherence support group for the Home Based Care towards the end of last month (October) to 42 clients. The adherence support group was conducted at K2 in Mahushu area. The topic was about HIV and treatment literacy.
This support group was held in order to help encourage the clients to accept themselves and their status, as well as increase their treatment literacy. We worked to decrease the stigma around HIV and increase the knowledge around consistent treatment and prevention of opportunistic infection.
The support group also allowed clients to interact with one another and share their experiences to motivate and support one another. We have found that the clients find encouragement from sharing what they have been through and how they overcome obstacles they face on the life of living positive (HIV Positive).
