We Are Celebrating All Children in Our Program

We have learned that providing only HIV medications to children living with HIV is not enough to ensure that children beat back HIV, stay healthy, and attend school. This is why our pediatric HIV care program provides a comprehensive package of medical care, adherence training, mental health counseling, co-infection prevention, and school support to make sure that all children with HIV live healthy and normal lives. We believe this comprehensive approach has been the reason for the extraordinary results we have had over the last two decades. Given below is a story of a three-year-old girl who is thriving under the care of her aunt and supported by our team of healthcare professionals.

Nina, a three-year-old orphan joined our program last year and is being cared for by her aunt. Since joining our program, Nina’s health has improved significantly. With the active participation of her aunt, we deliver a customized healthcare plan for Nina that includes regular health checkups, food, protein supplements, and medicines. In addition, her aunt receives training in caring for an HIV positive child such as her niece, Nina. We celebrate Nina and all children in our programs who are thriving despite the challenging circumstances they live in.

Many of you support children like Nina. Please continue to do so. Your support saves lives by keeping families safe from ill-health and children in school.
