Access to sustained care and treatment services

HNU works with the local government health care centres as well as private / NGOs to further scale-up ART and ensure facilities are operational in hard to reach places and developing community referral system. HNU promotes the link with the local government health units to ensure improved access to the inexpensive medicines needed to treat common infections and helped improve access to treatment among the affected and infected vulnerable communities.

The programme facilitates community outreaches within the existing Primary Health care activities in the lower government health units and links with the PLWAs to receive ART services from specialised service providers. This is aimed at ensuring that people living with HIV/AIDS both adults and children, who are not able to access good private care have effective access to the public health care system.
HNU supports the community health volunteer workers attachment to local government health care centres so as to improve village referrals and follow-up of clients. The community health volunteers are placed / integrate in local government health units near there village and supervised by the local government health worker. HNU trains community health volunteer workers who are expected to use 75% of their time at the health units supporting in provision of health services including HIV/AIDS education, and mobilise people living with HIV/AIDS to visit local government health centres. At the community level, people living with HIV/AIDS will be involved in mobilising for treatment and HIV/AIDS education.

The trained community health volunteers routinely provide treatment support counsellors, adherence plans and treatment assistant usually someone living in the household of the person living with HIV/AIDS.
