Not all are aware of routine viral load monitoring

Even after HIV viral load test become a routine monitoring test in India some are still not aware. During our data collection work, we came across a respondent who didn’t undergo his HIV viral load test even after exceeding one year. During our interaction we understood that he was not aware about the importance of HIV viral load test in monitoring HIV treatment.

Action taken: The data enumerator took the appointment for his viral load test. An appointment was provided for the test on 30 th Nov 2023 by the ART center at Regional Institute of Medical Sciences and was conducted on the same date.
