BARBADOS: Another option for HIV patients

BY HEATHER-LYNN EVANSON
THE BARBADOS Family Planning Association (BFPA) has become the first community-based organisation to offer treatment to those who test positive for HIV.
The initiative means that HIV+ patients have another option, other than Government’s Ladymeade Reference Unit, where they can receive life-saving medication. This was revealed by the executive director Juliette Bynoe-Sutherland at the BFPA’s 63rd annual awards ceremony at the Radisson Aquatica on Friday night. She said the BFPA had received a $750 000 grant from USAID and the Family Health International 360 (FHI 360) to assist with its programming. (HLE) Nation News
