Around March 2009,at the room 234 of general hospital of NTB. There was a house wife, whom her first husband heritage her HIV. Her husband passed away caused by tuberculosis infection opportunistic (it could seem the trigger is HIV). She lived in the countryside; it took 10 hours ride by car to reach her village. She worked as the farmer for some else rice field. Her first husband was a migrant worker (in Malaysia as coconut plantation keeper). In her second married, she started having frequent illness. She detected had HIV. Her second husband is staying negative up to now. She got the treatment for IO and also had the ART. When she had better condition she went back to her home village. On May 2009 I met her again in the same room, she told me that her husband prohibited her to consume ARV. Her husband thought, that ARV gave her wife another diseases (the fact that was only light side effect). They are both uneducated and low knowledge of heath and hygienic life and also part of poverty. Half an hour before, she released her last breath. She apologized to me because she broke her promised to keep the adherent in her days. She also gave me a question about her child future. She passed away right before my eyes. And my tears flew when I heard the cried of her mother( the only person whom took care of her while she was as hospitalized) and her seven years old son( also accompanied his mother and grand mother in hospital). That situation inspire me to empower PLHIV.
