HIV-Positive clients receive Anti Retro Viral Treatment (ART) in Pul-e-Charkhi Prison

Hiv-Symptoms-And-SignThe decision to start Anti-Retroviral Treatment (ART) for 5 HIV positive clients in Pul-e-Charkhi prison was taken after observing preliminary signs and symptoms of HIV/AIDS such as weight loss, skin rash, and respiratory problems in these patients. The eligibility for ART and diagnosis of HIV/AIDs was confirmed by examination of their blood for HIV virus based on NACP national standard algorithm (three positive tests) and close monitoring of CD4 count. The treatment has proved effective to control the rapid progress of HIV in these patients since its initiation.

Anti Retro Viral Treatment along with Basic Harm Reduction services to Injecting Drug Users (IDUs) and Drug Users (DUs) is being implemented by SDO since March 2008 in partnership with National Aids Control Program (NACP) of the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) and close coordination of  Pul-e-Charkhi prison health and security authorities. The Harm Reduction package is consisted of NSPs (Needle and syringe access and disposal programs), Community-based outreach, IEC (Information, education and communication), Sexual and reproductive healthcare, Primary healthcare, Social services, Drug dependence treatment, OST (opioid substitution treatment) and Voluntary Counseling and Testing (VCT) services to prisoners in general.

The following chart shows the total number of clients examined for blood born and sexually transmitted diseases since the start of the project in Pul-e-Charkh drop-in-center (DIC).

Total tested for

HIV: 1263

HBS:1248

HCV: 1217

Syphilis: 867

Cases positive

HIV: 10

HBS:75

HCV:109

Syphilis: 28

Chart 1: October 2011

There are an estimated 13.2 million injecting drug users worldwide and at least 10% of all cases of HIV infection worldwide results from unsafe injecting behavior- in some countries in central Asia, up to 90%. Many drug users spend years of their lives going in and out of prison. (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, UNAIDS and WHO (2006). Prisons are extremely high-risk environments for HIV and other blood born viruses’ transmission because of overcrowding, poor nutrition, limited access to preventive measures, continued illicit drug use and unprotected sex. Injecting drug users are vulnerable to infection with HIV and other blood born viruses as a result of sharing or reusing injecting equipments, sexual contact with other injecting drug users and high-risk sexual activity.

  • Afghanistan is considered to be a country with low HIV prevalence but at high risk for spreading HIV infection. The reasons behind this are as follow.
  • Over three decades of armed conflicts and  internal/ external displacement of a  huge number of people
  • Extremely poor social and public health infrastructure.
  • Drug trafficking, open borders and weak surveillance system etc.

Evidences show the growing problems of injecting drug use, HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C in prisons in Afghanistan as well, and could potentially spread to general population. Therefore, multiple interventions are essential to control the spread of HIV and other blood born diseases.

i am RODA by name, i want to tell the whole world how i got my hiv cured, i live in Manchester united kingdom, presently i am working as a teacher in an high school, i was once a stripper in a club and i got affected with HIV due to the nature of my job, in February 2nd 2009, This is not design to convince you but its just a personal health experience.
I never taught doctor LAWCY could ever get my HIV-AIDS cured with his healing herb spell, i have been spending so much buying my drugs for the past three years now and taking several medication but no relieve, until one day i was just browsing on the internet when i came across a great post of MARIAN, who explained to me how a great dr called PAPA LAWCY helped her, by curing her from HIV, i thought as much and i quicklly contacted him, and he gave to me the assurance that he is going to help me with his herbs, he told me to buy the herbs which he will use for the preparation of my medicine which i did, he prepared the medicine and told me how i am going to take them which i did, just three days later i went to the hospital to give the final test and the doctor confirm that i am now negative, i am so happy that GOD sent DR LAWCY to help me out of my problems, if you are out there passing through this kind of problem, you can also contact him on DRLAWCYSPELLHOM .com, and i pray that he will help you also.
All thanks to DR LAWCY, you can contact me on +44702407841

looked at. And after this post HIV-Positive clients receive Anti Retro Viral Treatment (ART) in Pul-e-Charkhi
Prison. I was excited enough to post a thought
:) I actually do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not
mind. Is it simply me or do some of the responses appear as if they are written by brain dead visitors?
:-P And, if you are posting on other online social sites, I'd like to keep
up with you. Would you list all of your communal pages like your

Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could undeniably be
