Working with “Partners in Hope”
We have had a great two weeks working with “Partners in Hope”. They have provided some intimate talks with our patients about the danger of not being tested for AIDS/HIV, about the huge benefits of taking ARV’s (medication for AIDS/HIV) and counselling.
So far, they are conducting AIDS/HIV tests to 2 out of 5 patients we receive. There are even discussions about “Partners in Hope” providing this service for an additional day.
The local chiefs have been very supportive by encouraging villagers to get tested if they are unsure of their health status. We are very pleased we can help the community in this way.
