Putting Learning into Action
Sajnay Jaiswal is an HIV positive person residing in Ramipur of Pidara development block of Varanasi district. His wife too is HIV positive. Sanjay had worked at the Community Care Centre Varanasi as outreach worker and got insight into various aspects of HIV and AIDS. He has tried to implement the learning from the Community Care Centre in his very own life.
At the time he left the Community Care Centre, his home did not have a toilet and the family was prone to OIs. He took initiative to get a toilet constructed in his home and started following all what he had learnt at the centre so as to prolong his and his wife's lives. They are now leading a healthier life.
Scores of hygiene and water kits were distributed among HIV positives under WASH Project through the district level network in Varanasi. The kit contained SafeWat, ORS packets, soaps and other sanitary articles. All this has substantially decreased incidents of OIs.
