We visited a 35 years old female at Mthimba area; she is HIV positive and she was not drinking her treatment well. She went to the clinic, do HIV testing, and they didn’t counsel her. They just gave her HIV medication, and she was drinking it any time of the day.
We have now counselled her, and she understood everything and she was happy. We told her that she must join the support groups that we have. We gave her a food parcel, and also prayed with her and encouraged her to study the word of God.
She is living in a one-room shack with her two children.She is not working, so they survive with the child support grant.
[Enabling patients to take the correct HIV medication regularly,at the right time of day, and with food, is a constant challenge – and vital to staying healthy.]
