1 July to 30 September 2012
Aurum patients already on ART have been enrolled into our programme as agreed to with the DoH. We are hoping that the agreement will be finalized soon and that SAG will supply ARVs for all our patients. We have tried to follow up on patients who defaulted on a ART by calling or home visit tracing.
Pediatric pateints are being handled at SAG PMTCT clinics and we are overhauling the whole referral system for the advancement of the clinic reports.
We are still transferring patients to government and it has been successful to date. Tracing is still problematic. Resistance and resentment is apparent in some of the patients who are not compliant. Being a refugee in a foreign country can be overwhelming to some people and we try to handle each and every single situation with the respect and understanding that it deserves.
