Raphia Noumbissi, Abiba Namen – Improving Adherence to Antiretroviral through Support Groups

Date grant awarded: October 24, 2019

SHAHICA, INC is a charitable organization with a mission to empower others in Cameroon so that they can make informed decisions regarding their health in order to minimize hardship and unnecessary death. Our project, Improving Adherence to Antiretroviral through Support Groups, will serve as a model demonstrating that HIV is a chronic disease with treatment options. We expect to instill hope in others which will result in more widespread testing and identification of the disease. We are confident that the 40 initial attendees will be able to build capacity and reach 200 other people living with HIV in Foumban and the surrounding area.
