WE SEE PREGNANT WOMEN DYING FROM HIV


I’m 20 years old, or maybe 21. I have three children. I am pregnant with my fourth. When a pregnant woman doesn’t take her treatment correctly, it increases the risk for her to transmit the virus to her child. Women have a poor adherence to their treatment. Some are not coming, and we can see in the clinics that some were out of pills for a long time. It’s a long way to the Ha Seng clinic, but there is nothing that I can do about it. I just have to put up with it. Some days I couldn’t go to collect my medication. That was because of a problem with my feet. It means that her treatment will not work properly. Even if she continues taking the pills, she will get sick. When an HIV patient doesn’t take treatment, or they are resistant to treatment, they die.
