Buhonga beneficiary on ARV treatment
publié le 04-02-2021
I was sick and dying for months, a community relay advised me to get tested for HIV and the result of the test was positive. Since then, I am under ARV treatment and supported by Service Yezu Mwiza. Today I am healthy and going about my daily activities. I thank SYM for its medical follow-up and advice on taking ARV drugs regularly as prescribed by the doctor. Also, thanks to its mobile clinic strategy, SYM regularly comes with the whole package of services to Buhonga for the follow-up of its beneficiaries and the drugs reach us without us having to travel long distances.
I appeal to anyone who suspects that he or she has contracted HIV, to get tested at SYM in order to have a good therapeutic follow-up in case the test turns out to be positive, or to have prevention advice if the test is negative. For other people living with HIV, I advise them to follow the treatment carefully to maintain an undetectable viral load, this will not only prevent new infections, but also allow them to have good health, because health is life.
