Josephine, ReACT’s Social Worker noticed Mary* with this paper and asked her about it. Mary told her that she reads this paper on a daily basis because, “when she reads it; she is reminded of her personal responsibility with taking her medication right and that is why she treasures it.”
[OTZ works with young people living with HIV and empowers them to take responsibility for their own health.]
The 95-95-95 Strategy is part of the targets to see AIDS ended by the year 2030. It seeks to see 95% of people who are living with HIV knowing their status; 95% of the people who know their status being on treatment; and 95% of people who are on treatment having suppressed viral loads.
Living with HIV is just a reality for Mary and other young people at Veronica Home, but thankfully they have the support they need to live out full and healthy lives. ReACT is grateful for the Aunties, Social Worker, and Manager on the ground in Kenya who love these kids, and for the local agencies that give them the support and medical care they need.
