| AIDS Awareness
Enhancing AIDS Awareness through conducting Sessions, Street Corner Meetings, Street Plays and Magic Shows on HIV /AIDS, and lastly through one to one sessions.
Depending on the area we adopt one or more of the following methods:
- Participatory Group Sessions with a large number of assembled persons like using Flip Charts and having question and answer sessions, organising quiz shows during and after the session. These include discussions on Attitudes, Stigma and Discrimination, and where necessary on HIV / AIDS Home Care, diet for positive people and referrals for testing and treatment and allied topics. This is very effective in Jails, schools and colleges and with Corporate Houses on invitation
- For mass awareness programmes, street plays and/or magic shows on HIV / AIDS are used. We also distribute condoms and other material after giving condom demonstrations on the right way of using them. We distribute IEC material and provide referrals if some people from the audience want.
- At our Drop-in-Centres/Clinics in the three places mentioned above, we provide information to small groups and even hold one to one discussions. We provide pre- test counselling for STIs / HIV / AIDS. In the cases of STIs we provide Syndromic (Symptomatic) treatment and also refer them to Government Hospitals. For people testing positive with our Kit, we refer the clients to the nearest Government Hospital for ELISA tests and CD 4 count.
