Personal experience: Living with HIV

My name is Candido Jõao Ngunza and I am a Passionate (volunteer) in the project.

I’m very enthusiastic about the arrival of the project in Kalandula and in my community of Kiluanje. In a short time I have already managed to recognize the symptoms of malaria, particularly in my children. The project is improving many things in my community and in the families.  Because of the information the Community Health Agents pass in our community about Malaria, HIV / TB, I now have prevention plans in my family.

I am already promoting cleaning campaigns in my community, as well as every morning I clean the patio of my house, and bury the trash, sleep under the mosquito net. I did not know my HIV status, but through the project I did the HIV test and I already know my condition and I will continue to prevent these diseases.

if we are going to fight against malaria then we really need to promote basic sanitation.

Strength and courage!

Project: Community Control of Malaria, Malange

 

My name is Miguel Sebastião. I am 27 years old and a member of the ADPP Women's Farmers' Club of Kiluanje. I did not know much about malaria until I met a Community Health Agent in my area and he explained basic facts about malaria and HIV / TB. Although I had little information about these diseases, the arrival of the project in my area brought a lot of new information.

I was able to do my risk reduction plan on how to reduce my chances of becoming infected by these diseases. I never liked sleeping under a mosquito net and in our community the basic sanitation was very poor. Now, I sleep under a mosquito net and as a family, we now have a place to bury the trash behind our house. In addition, my family and I are now recognizing the signs and symptoms of malaria.

I am also a Volunteer Activist. I was mobilized and advised to take the HIV test and today I know my HIV status. I decided to get tested for HIV before I received Community Counseling.
