Voices from the Ground

“I was widowed eight years ago. When I registered in the Vihaan program, the Peer Counsellor counselled me on the importance of treatment adherence and social linkages and helped me get a widow pension and Dhanashree benefit from the staff at the Care and Support Centre (CSC). My treatment adherence is now more than 95% and I am able to work and earn Rs 5000-6000 every month,”

Ms Nagamma, a PLHIV living in Chamarajanagara district

“During the COVID-19 lockdown, I was not able to visit the ART Centre to collect medicine. The Vihaan staff provided me medicine and food kit for two months and they counselled me on disclosing my HIV status to my family. I then shared my HIV status with my family members and now they support and care for me”

Ms. Siddamma, a PLHIV from Bagalkot district

“With the support of Mr. Kumar, the Vihaan Outreach Worker, I have done a CD4 test twice. At the time of registration at the Link ART Centre LAC my CD4 count (of white blood cells that fight infection) was 473, now it is 547. Every month I attend a health camp where I receive vitamins and nutrition support, and now my adherence increased has increased above 95% and my weight has increased to 62kg!”

Mr. Parashurama, a PLHIV from Hospet, Bellary district
