In co-operation with the Catholic Bishops of Southern Africa and PEPFAR, we provide a clinic for over 2000 patients from the local community, where ARV treatment is available for HIV/AIDS sufferers. We are also delighted to announce a new agrrement has just been signed with the Department of Health, Gauteng Province.
All of the Sisters and Staff involved in the ARVD programme have attended training courses regarding the administration of the medication, drug literacy and pre- and post-therapy counselling.
The patients are all given drug literacy training and will receive on-going counselling. But, more importantly, they have access to doctors and nurses who can treat the opportunistic infections they might also have, in a calm and loving environment.
