Project Description

:

In India many  places with a high prevalence of HIV, efforts to provide care and support for  AIDS orphans have been underway for many years. Although existing initiatives  are encouraging, many of these are small scale and are struggling with the  increasing number of children that require care mainly in high-prevalence states  like Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharastra and Telangana. In order to develop a  comprehensive and sustainable response to children, DESIRE Society has been  initiated a project which is committed to provide services of treatment,  nutrition, shelter and education with moral support to Children Living with  HIV/AIDS (CLHA). Now the organization is able to support up to 34 children  under this project.

Activities of the Project:

  • Shelter and Food
  • Health Care
  • Education and  Moral Support
  • Social Security

 

Monitoring & Evaluation

: Once a  child is admitted at centre he will be under medical observation by health care  team. Drug adherence has more priority in this program, because unless a  patient takes ART regularly he can  not find result of it. Each child will be maintained a separate file with  precise code. Orphans and neglected children will be given preference to bring  them on facilities. A five member review committee will evaluate the program  chronologically and advise the team to work more effectively. Medical officer  of concern project site is the in-charge for the treatment part and he is  responsible for the entire clinical services of the program. The medical staff  will work under his/her guidelines and supervision.

Outcome

: By offering these services will enable the stigma free environment among  the children suffering with HIV/AIDS. Therefore, this will reduce the stigma  associated with the HIV disease in our society. While treating their  opportunistic infections and offering them proper nutrition will also enable  them to attend the school regularly and psycho-support (counseling) can impact  on children to adopt good behaviour. In addition this support will strengthen  the positive thinking to lead happy life among CLHAs.
