Treatmennt Literacy

 

DACOPHA’s projects include Training on treatment literacy and Nutrition to PLHIV and guardians of orphans who are HIV positive and are on ARV therapy. The second on going project is creating awareness to PLHIVs on the new HIV and AIDS (Prevention and control ) Act, 2008 focusing mainly on part VII  concerning STIGMA and DISCRIMINATION and part VIII on Rights and obligations of persons living with HIV and AIDS. Both projects so far have been very successful. In the Treatment Literacy project we have managed to reach 650 clients in 21 wards (7wards in each of the three municipalities namely Ilala, Temeke and Kinondoni) The second project we have managed to train 2 TOTs on HIV and AIDS prevention and control act, 2008. These two TOTs have managed to impart their knowledge and create awareness on the HIV and AIDS prevention and control act to 30 PLHIVs from member organizations. It is an on going project and needs scale up.

These two projects are being funded by Futures Group International
