We are looking for funds to achieve this program. We are working in partnership with the
French organization on this project.
This program provides care for 100 children during a 3 years period (30 children the 1 st year, 30 the 2 nd and finally 40 the last year) to ensure access to treatments and support to properly adhere to the treatments in order to achieve undetectable viral loads. These children will have the opportunity to be a part of the UNAIDS target 909090 project. This project's goal is that by 2020, 90% of all people living with HIV will know their HIV status, 90% diagnosed HIV infection will receive sustained antiretroviral therapy, and 90% receiving antiretroviral therapy will have successful viral suppression.
In addition, a social worker will track health of children through check-ups, and conduct group talks to promote adherence among children and family members, whereas a trainer will provide a 5 days formation for the association’s staff about HIV issues, healthcare support and create awareness of the importance of early HIV treatment.
