Care Centre by Lotus Medical Foundation
This is a unique project by Lotus medical Foundation, a fully dedicated hospital for People Living with HIV (PLHIV). In 2007, we started our field activities and realised the need for Indoor Care for PLHIV. Very few Doctors were having updated knowledge of treatment of HIV and HAART (Highly Active Anti Retro Viral) medicines. Government was trying to provide these drugs free of the cost. PLHIV patients suffer from lots of opportunistic infections and drug side effects. Many come to hospital at late stage and have debility, psychologically depressed and have faced stigma and discrimination at home and many hospitals and in the society.
They were and are in need of holistic approach for HIV care. So we started exclusive HIV hospital with 12 beds capacity.
