Heterosexual HIV Infoline 1800 812 404

Welcome to the 3rd edition of the
Pozhet e-newsletter

This edition coincides with HIV/AIDS Awareness Week and World AIDS Day, with the important message of ‘Everybody Counts’.  In light of this message, Pozhet’s work with heterosexual people is especially relevant. Considering HIV notifications among heterosexuals continue to increase, delivering important HIV related health messages targeting heterosexuals at risk of HIV and those diagnosed becomes more and more vital.  

In 2019, we will continue to work on broader population level initiatives targeting heterosexuals at risk of HIV. Initiatives will focus on the areas of social media, community engagement, stigma and discrimination to reduce late diagnosis and encourage testing among those at risk. Our work with clients will also continue with emphasis on appropriate referral, retention in care, treatment adherence and general health and wellbeing of heterosexuals living with HIV. 

With the holiday season fast approaching, Pozhet would like to wish you a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas, and best wishes for a great New Year 2019!
