East African Community HIV Programs Improve Adherence

July 8, 2010

IRIN/PlusNews examines the "benefits of bringing HIV services closer to rural communities" through mobile drug distribution. The programs make it "easy to reach populations, many of whom are normally too poor to have transport to the established health centers," said Waziri Rashid Njau of Support for International Change, which reaches "nearly 2,500 people with mobile [antiretroviral] clinics and has so far trained around 200 health workers," IRIN/PlusNews writes. The article also quotes Emmanuel Patta, a field officer with The AIDS Support Organization in Uganda: "Our experience is that it is a lot easier to deal with large numbers of antiretroviral clients with this model ... Space at health centres is limited, and it is easy to visit them where they are" (7/7).
