Goal of the Project

:

To expand the life  expectancy

Supporting Agency

:

Individual donors and few  business associates

Activities

:

Since pediatric formulations were  not available, majority of the children living with HIV/AIDS were not able to  get proper nutrition and treatment. Another big concern for those working in  the field of HIV/AIDS is to reach out to the large number of children who have  not been tested and who could be potential carriers of the virus. Identifying  children who are vulnerable to HIV infection and verifying their Status would  therefore be a priority. Currently this project is able to support up to 300  children.

Core activities of the project:

  • Nutritional       Support
  • Diagnosis       of HIV  infection in  infants and children
  • Enumeration       of CD4 Cells in children found to be HIV Positive
  • ART initiation for children needed treatment
  • Diagnosis       and management of Opportunistic Infections
  • Psycho-social       Support
  • Travel and logistical Support

Beneficiaries

:

Children living with  HIV/AIDS and having parents or guardians

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.
