Dear Onesmus,

Its excellent work- from raising awareness to linking truckers to services...splendid piece of work. I like the way aids competence process through SALT visits raises awareness. The discussions with the community brings forth the concerns and risks and from what we can do, the people move to we can do, we have control over our situation.

Involvement of PLHIV network has contributed immensely to the process as well.

Congratulations to you and your team. Look forward to loads of learning.

Hey Rituu!
Good suggestion and would be interesting to check that with Mbugua from the Union.
Through our experience in GLIA. There has been increased service uptake especially after SALT visits and self assessments process that have helped the truckers to reflect deeply on their own concerns and meaning, Direction and vision in life.
For instance in Mlolongo wellness centre, we do have VCT/ STI services being provided there. The STI clinic was established through the support of GLIA component 3(Ministry of health in Kenya)
The VCT is being run by Liverpool and they do out reach to other truck stops along the Northern transport corridor in Kenya.

As you might have seen in the videos. The VCT centre used to get less than 3 clients per day but todate they get more than 15/day.
More truckers are now asking to be referred to ART Centres along the transport Corridor share Carol Ndugu- Wellness Centre Moderator Mlolongo.

Mbugua video explicitly share on how the truckers have really come into terms with this reality of AIDs.

Merci

Onesmus

Hi Onesmus,

Thanks for the video. Great work! Truckers are hard to reach through traditional programmes. I am happy to know that truckers were receptive to the SALT discussions and came forward for HIV testing. But where are the HIV services placed? At halting points ? Are you planning to do a baseline on uptake of services by truckers?

Please convey my appreciation to Carolyne.

Regards,

Rituu
