PLHIV Response Center (PRC) is a PLHIV community driven response center linking PLHIV to existing service delivery network. It primarily acts as a communication and coordinating platform for PLHIV seeking treatment, as well as accommodating people seeking information about HIV and asking assistance for testing. The Center is designed for people friendly access through wordpress, Facebook chat, e-mail, twitter, telephone and mobile lines as well as text messages.
PRC collaborates with different field such as medical, legal, livelihood, human rights, and psycho-social providers thus, pushing for a positive community engagement. It is manned by PLHIVs supported by private partner agencies.
To reach out more PLHIV, key affected population and the society as a whole, the Center saw the need to produce infographics about HIV and other concerns associated with it like living the Positive Life; finding support for Treatment; helping on how to disclose status to love ones; discussing concerns on service providers and medical centers; PLHIV’s rights, reporting HIV related discrimination in and setting and finding legal assistance.
PRC have been keen using available technologies as platform for their services, doing so reaches the key affected population in the country especially in the rural areas. It is very evident in their social media platforms, ensuring timely response to queries and reaching out to PLHIVs regardless of age, gender and sexual orientation.
Currently the Center caters cases on treatment services, policy and governance, employment cases, cases about the family, psychosocial, spiritual and economic concerns, cases of migration and legal cases.
