Voices from Rakai

Gertrude Nakigozi

Most patients who come here perceive themselves to be HIV positive. The majority actually come in to confirm their suspicions. But still there are a few who are surprised by HIV-positive results. We let them know that being HIV positive does not mean they need ARVs. We try to educate them about CD4 counts and tell them they can always come back and receive treatment for any illness. You find a few patients who keep saying, Don’t you think I’m ready for ARVs? Or they plead to have their CD4 counts retested. We resort to ARVs only when we have to.
