Determination of Girl.

Samvad Helpline is a phone based counseling service. We also hold awareness programs about HIV/AIDS and related issues. We feel that every positive person should have the correct knowledge of nutrition, testing, ART adherence so that they live normal life with HIV. But it is sad that there is still lack of awareness which leads to unnecessary worries, problems.Here was a call from a 17 years old girl who wanted to know how to increase the CD4 count. She had come to the hospital for some…See More

Profile Information

What do you do?
SAMVAD stands for Making U Know and Talk About AIDS You can call up this number and ask anything about HIV and AIDS. You don’t have to reveal your name, address or phone number. Its anonymous. Why Samvad ? HIV is perceived as a ‘disease of the others’ – of people living in the margins of society, with questionable lifestyles. This prevents people from seeking information and help about the disease. Lack of information leads to either ignorance of the threat of HIV or to panic – both are unnecessary. HIV has high socio-economic impact as it affects people in their most productive years and destroys entire families. It is not just a medical problem but a social, cultural, economic and legal problem. The problem has many layers many contexts. People want information specific to their situation, one-on-one. They don’t want to be SEEN asking. A phone based service addresses all these needs. It’s anonymous, one-on-one and easy to use. Is This Service Successful? Yes, it proves the number of calls we receive on a day-to-day basis.
Tell us about your self
We give free anonymous Counselling to people infected by HIV/AIDs.
Your greatest achievement
For the year ended 31st March 2012, we have received more than a lakh of calls and gave anonymous Counselling

Hello, I am a BHMS medical professional. I wish to share my experience with you. Last year while attending a patient in the hospital I contacted his blood on my finger which had a small cut. Although I had covered the cut with cotton bandage, I was feeling scared that I have HIV infection. I was not sure but suspected that the patient was HIV +ve. To remove the suspicion, one year after the incident I did one HIV Tri dot test, which…
