Estimates indicate that currently, 1.5 million Kenyans are living with HIV/AIDS and around 1.2 million children have been orphaned by death due to AIDS. The majority of infected Kenyans live below the poverty line and can be found within informal settlements in Kenya’s urban areas, including Kibera. With an estimate of over 300,000 people living with HIV/AIDs in Kibera slums and below the poverty line, it is imperative that support is given to them in the form of counseling and therapy, emotional and nutritional support and facilitating linkages with free health services. STRATEGY AND ACHIEVEMENTS: IDEWES provides care and support for people living with HIV and Aids (PLWHAs) through home visits to PLWHAs; counseling and group therapy; nutritional support; and treatment therapy including Prevention Mother to Child Transmission (PMCT), referrals for ARVs and TB therapies. IDEWES currently supports 30 PLWHAs through home based care, counseling and group therapy. Working in partnership with NACC in 2011, IDEWES will target 480 PLWHAs to provide more support in this area.
