HIV Clinic and Hospital – Care Centre
Dealing with HIV is a medical and mental battle for those affected by it and those fighting against it. The Care Centre provides comprehensive care, early detection, orientation, treatment and rehabilitation of people living with HIV/ AIDS (PLHA). The Centre offers counselling for behavioural change, family and psychosocial support, nutritional, educational and vocational services as an integrated “one-stop” so PLHA can build trust with Lotus who is equipped to deal with most of their needs.

Counselling plays major role in HIV management. New drugs (ART) can control HIV and give patients a chance for normal, productive life. The Lotus comprehensive care and support centre is a short stay home for people living with HIV (PLHIV) who are initiated on ART, trained to adhere to drug schedules and advised on adverse drug reactions.
Patients come for regular health check up as well as treatment for minor and major opportunistic infections and drug side effects. Psychosocial, nutritional and educational support is provided along with information about orphanages, destitute homes, palliative care, vocational trainings, rehabilitation and legal support.
Such 360°support is the only way to give PLHIV a chance to live normal and productive lives for as long as possible, under the circumstances.

Awareness And Prevention Programs
“AIDS affects many parts of society, and so everyone needs to be aware of HIV and AIDS.”
Why is HIV and AIDS education important?
- The expansion and improvement of HIV/ AIDS education around the world is critical to preventing the spread of HIV.
- HIV and AIDS education also plays a vital role in reducing stigma and discrimination.
Providing the general population with basic AIDS education contributes to the spread of accurate information; promoting awareness and tackling stigma and discrimination.
It is also important that people who are already infected with HIV receive HIV and AIDS education. This can help people to live positively without passing on the virus to anyone else; to prevent themselves from becoming infected with a different strain of the virus; and to ensure a good quality of life by informing them about medication and the support that is available to them.
HIV and AIDS education can take place in many different environments, from classes at school to families and friends sharing knowledge at home. It is important that this education is provided in a variety of settings to ensure that the most vulnerable and marginalised groups in society are reached, and that accurate information about HIV and AIDS is reinforced from different sources.
