What's Your Impact?


The cases of HIV  in the Philippines is still on the rise. With this in mind, what is your impact? How can you, your organization or your agency contribute impactful activities to combat the epidemic.

For years now, with the involvement of the Foundation in the National HIV Program, a few organizations still create activities with no impact. Some just count heads or participants during HIV talks, some train people with no direction or programs for sustainability, some create programs that are literally just a waste of money.

The cases of HIV in the Philippines is on the rise. People are dying here and yet, organizations and agencies don't have a fast approach to arresting the epidemic. The halting of programs due to issues and obstacles should not deter organizations and agencies in creating new and innovative activities that will create impact and arrest the epidemic. Programs that are being done by organizations and agencies that create less and slow impact should be evaluated or even shelved. 

There are programs all over the world that work. Why can't we adopt them in the country? Why can't we all think outside the box and look at the fast outcome and not just count head and waste money?

The time of action is now. But if we always think, like it's business as usual, then nothing will; happen to any of our programs.

I havent started my medication yet since I am still waiting for my next consultation 7 days from now. I am desparate to talk to someone. I feel like anytime I will die. Please help me.
Although I already opted in love yourself as my treatment hub it feels like they are too far and i cant easily talk to them if ever worst happens. Please help me. My cp number is XXX. I dont know how i will take care of myself. Im a call center agent and i am the only one taking care of my family.

XXX


POZZIEPINOY'S RESPONSE

Hi XXX,

First of all, thanks your for your email. Thank you for searching and finding the blog. The blog contains a lot of information related to HIV and AIDS and the programs in the Philippines. I do hope that you can browse and read topics here especially the stories and questions of our readers. Trust me, you will learn a lot from each story and each concern.

Now let me go to your email. Based on your what you sent me, you mentioned that your CD4 is blow 200. To the classification of CDC, any CD4 level below 200 is already AIDS level, even without the presence of opportunistic infections. Thus it is imperative that you get treatment specifically ARV treatment fast. I don't know why there is a wait of 7 days for your next consultation. Perhaps, you haven't completed your baseline tests yet. Well, you never mentioned anything so I just assumed that was the cause of the wait. Anyway, like what I said you need to start with the ARV treatment fast.

You then have an assignment. Look up the current antiretroviral meds that may be given to you. Research on how to take them and their side effects. Of course you will given the first line regimen so do your research on these medicines:

1. Nevirapine
2. Zidovudine
3. Lamivudine
4. Tenofovir
5. Efavirens

You will be given 3 of these as part of your regimen. So make sure to check on them.

I know it is hard at first, but acceptance will just come. It is ok to be depressed right now and think of all the bad things that might happen to you, but trust me, everything will be fine. Like in all my blog posts, it is important for you to have these:

1. Belief in yourself - that you will accept it, that you will get well and live a productive and meaningful life

2. Belief in your doctor - that your doctor will guide you and give you the best medical care

3. Belief in your medicines - that the ARVs will arrest your HIV and won't create havoc to your health as long as you are adherent.

4. Belief that others will help you - that there is community that will help you to go through your health and wellness.

Love Yourself Hub has counselors who can help you, but in case, you can contact the numbers below. They are the Project Red Ribbon counselors and they have been handling clients' issues for 6 years now. 

XXX, you will be fine. Even if you are the breadwinner, you will be great. Just have those beliefs that I mentioned above and you will be ok. Project Red Ribbon will be here for you no matter what. 

Stay healthy,
Pozziepinoy

The Baguio Care Team


Today, Project Red Ribbon went to Baguio City to check on the status of the HIV Screening Program of rainbow Barracks and Metropolitan Community Church of Metro Baguio. The Foundation also addressed the issues of treatment, care and support in the City.

Pastor Myke Sotero, Tita Boots Yabut and Gregory Rugay all mentioned their struggles with the Baguio General Hospital but the Foundation reiterated that when it comes to treatment policies of the hubs, the people living with HIv clients of the hubs shouldn't stand up and address those issues. It would be hard for even the Foundation to interfere without the accompanying evidences. Thus, we told our advocates to start empowering their clients.

The Foundation also visited Baguio Health Center, the social hygiene clinic of the city. We met Dr. Brillantes, the head of the clinic. We started educating Dr. Brillantes and the DOH-CAR representative Ms Cherry and the BGH representative Darwin on how to go about the process of transforming the clinic into a satellite treatment hubs. We laid down all the facts, from communicating with the regional office for validation, to completing all the requirements to the recommendation. of the Regional Health Office to the central office. We also discussed how the OHAT of Philhealth works.

During the meeting, the Foundation also discussed the community-based screening, or the HIV screening that its being conducted by Rainbow barracks and MCCMB. Ewe discussed it purpose and the referral mechanism.

Later in the afternoon, the Foundation had a courtesy call in the DOH-CAR. We discussed how Baguio City has become the pioneer implementor of the CBS all over the country since they are the first organization to fully implement it.

The day was fulfilling and the Foundation was able to link DOH-CAR, BGH, the Baguio Health Center and RB and MCCMB.
