Easing access to HIV treatment for differently abled

Data enumerator came across a visually challenged person living with HIV at Labuang Baji Regional Hospital, South Sulawesi, Indonesia while collecting data during July. The person was facing consistent difficulty in collecting the HIV medicines every month from the facility.

Action taken: An agreement was reached with the manager at the facility that our data enumerator will act as a representative of the person, collect the HIV medicine refill every month and hand deliver to the person from August onwards. This arrangement continues and have resolved the difficulty of differently abled person and access to treatment, which is not much talked about.
