With the HIV infection rate in Pader District, northern Uganda, at 11%, PAORINHER’s clinical staff regularly test patients for HIV.
Because of the lingering stigma associated with the virus, denial and refusal to be tested for HIV remain a problem in the community, especially among men. But for those with the virus, a test is the first step to a longer and healthier life because treatment can begin.
This gift is equivalent to supplying a week’s worth of tests.
