Hope for Life, Winterveld, Archdiocese of Pretoria
1 Jul – 30 Sep 2012
All ART clients have been absorbed into the DOH system. This includes ART drugs and laboratory analysis.
Sometimes patients leave the programme opting for traditional medicine, or they feel better and no longer feel that they need to take ARVs. We have a defaulter remedial programme that helps to re-educate the patients. Our adherence team traces and does home visits for patients that have missed their appointments.
We work closely with Medunsa Research Council (MECRU). At a meeting with collaborating ART clinics at MECRU, Hope for Life was appointed to lead a presentation onadherence monitoring and return dates for patients.
We participate in the District Implementation Plan.
