On Friday association „Pozityvus gyvenimas" (Positive Life), which is taking care and helping for HIV patients and for those who are at-risk groups in Klaipeda's region, started its activities in the newly established center of STI prevention, consultations and social services at Taikos ave. 107. As a beginning, here it was symbolically given start for "European HIV-hepatitis testing week".
For several weeks the work is “boiling” in Taikos pr. 107. Here, people infected with HIV, their families and volunteers are repairing premises, which are being rented from municipality. These premises will provide full support to patients and those individuals who are at- risk. Lot of work to do, since premises were abandoned and stood in bad conditions, but our enthusiasm to create a qualified office by sufficient funds and by our own hands is enough.
On July 21st 2015, an agreement of support was signed by the company “GILEAD”. According to the agreement, €8000 support is to be delivered for association “Positive life” to ensure activities of a cabinet providing consultations and psychological services for people infected with HIV (PLHIV).
The Ministry of Health has submitted to Seimas of the Republic of Lithuania for consideration and adoption of HIV / AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections Prevention and Control Action Plan for 2015-2017. Comments and proposals may be submitted by institutions and the public concerned by 2 of June 2015.
About two-thirds of those who are infected with HIV (in Klaipeda region) cannot meet their doctors. That indicates that health service is hardly accessible or it is just simply missing. By receiving funding from Klaipeda‘s municipal administration, association „Pozityvus gyvenimas“ will try to fill-up this gap.
