Daniel Ukwu Leadership Foundation has being organizing series of self-sponsored projects in collaboration with Nynetha in Enugu Urban and rural communities; these projects are specifically aimed at reaching in and out of school youths carrying the same health-driven messages on HIV/Aids. An activity that is aimed at correcting a lot of misinformation about HIV, Providing detailed and factual education on HIV/AIDS , counseling and testing individuals at different cadres to ensure a safer health status and maintaining a healthy lifestyle pending from the vital exposures and knowledge imbibed by the individual . The program started by the facilitator creating basic information about HIV/AIDS, some of the vital points mentioned were- HIV is the virus spread by HIV infection. Aids is the most advanced stage of HIV infection. HIV is spread through contact with the blood, semen, pre-seminal fluid, rectal fluids, vaginal fluids, or breast milk of a person infected with HIV. HIV is the infection that causes Aids. HIV has few or no symptoms for up to 10 years or more before symptoms of Aids develop. There is no cure for HIV/Aids, but treatment is available. HIV can be spread during sex play. Latex and condoms offer very good protection against HIV. The facilitator continued by highlighting that we all want to protect ourselves and each other from infections like HIV therefore preventive measures is most advisable. The facilitator emphasized on the symptoms of HIV and how some people develop HIV Symptoms shortly after being infected with other diseases, but it usually takes more than 10 years and HIV has several stages of diseases, the first includes swollen glands in the throat, armpit, or groin. Other early HIV symptoms may last for only a few weeks, and then there are usually no HIV symptoms for many years.

The first session was concluded with lots of questions and answer., HCT awareness program and the testing proper took over, HCT register,  client –intake form and attendance sheet were all used to ensure accurate reporting and evidences. 18 females were tested and confirmed negative, 6 males were tested and 1 confirmed positive while the other 5 confirmed negative thereafter some  peculiar cases were spotted in the field , most young girls and women have alot of sexually transmitted diseases  as a result of reckless practices and more ignorantly on some ill-advised platforms from traditional approaches to curing infections, allowance of casual partners and unprotected sex was a recorded point during the course of our counseling, the counseling took on each person individually , this created a line for strong divulgence of matters worrying the concerned persons, most of them were not positive but had other medical needs, they were duely informed by telling them to get to the various health facilities for treatments and follow-up.

CHALLENGES

  1. Some people still have that fear and resistance attitude towards testing and finding out their status, this affects the work and progress of preventive actions earlier in an individual.
  2. Spiritual beliefs underrate the essence of some people finding out their status “in a score that am above ailments”
  3. The factor of confidentiality, stigmatization and discrimination is still one of the core challenges HCT has being facing till date.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS-

  1. Information misconceptions were gathered from the field, some of the members of the church thought they knew about HIV, until the questions started flowing and a play of ignorance revealed itself the suggestion is that visitation of churches should be done more often.
  2. Consistent and accurate furnished information on HIV/AIDS should be disseminated amongst religious leaders; it is a quicker means of getting to the members of the church.
  3. The more enlightened and up to date religious leaders should be the peer instructors in the various HIV clubs that will be instituted in the churches especially rural churches.

The program started by the facilitator creating basic information about the foundation and how the foundation have affected the lives of many in our country. He takes his bible passage from Hebrews 4:12 “for the word of God is alive and active, sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart”. He made them to understand how important any word that comes out from their mouth as a mother to their children is. He urges them to believe in God and that  there is nothing God cannot do ,that their confession should be guided by the word of God.
