Faraja Centre CBHC offers HIV Counseling and Testing to all who voluntarily come for it. The VCT programme is done both at the Centre and in the villages as an outreach activity, targeting those who cannot reach the centre due to distance, time, fear or stigma, after awareness has been created. Emotional support is offered to all who test in order to facilitate decision-making following the test and to their family, friends and the community upon disclosure by the client.
- Faraja CBHC VCT has tested 56,713 people (28,931 Male: 27,782 Female) between 2005 and December 2017.
- Out of the number tested, there has been an average HIV positivity rate of 4.2%.
This programme has been supported by Trocaire, Ireland, Misean Cara, Ireland, MMM friends and family.
