Why I love my job - Quote 9 of 10
The first child to receive ARVs at Lomahasha clinic.
“The first pediatric patients on ARVs have been rolled out and were seen on site by the outreach team and a nurse of Lomahasha clinic...It was a very special moment, because Lomahasha is the first site for roll out and is hopefully serving [as an example] for many other clinics that will follow in the future.”
This is a segment from an email from Helga Loeffler, a colleague of mine here in Swaziland.
We are working toward the decentralization of pediatric HIV care throughout Swaziland, and the Lomahasha clinic, previously ill-equipped for such care, is now dispensing ARVs to children.
A 'special moment', indeed.
