“C-NET siempre ha trabajado en Corozal pero en esta ocasión hemos venido por empezar un proyecto bajo el fondo mundial donde vamos a ofrecer ayuda sicosocial a personas con VIH de todo el país y nosotros como organización vamos a estar haciéndolo en los distritos de Orange Walk, Corozal y Belice entonces en esta ocasión venimos hacer el contacto con personal del hospital para poder facilitar el proceso de brindar est ayuda a las personas con VIH”


Through REDCA and with funding from Global Fund, C-NET Belize continues its efforts to strengthen the technical capacities of persons living with HIV, empowering them to strive toward better health, security and dignity; through various activities.


Erika Castellanos Director of C Net Belize


“Lo que se planea hacer es un paquete de servicios en donde las personas van a conseguir consejería adonde se les va ayudar sobre los temas de la derencia que sabemos que las personas se adhieran a sus medicamentos, llevan a sus citas médicas, se les van a enseñar sobre sus derechos como pacientes con VIH pero sobre todo también se va hablar sobre las responsabilidades que tenemos las personas con VIH con la sociedad con las otras personas con nuestras parejas con las familias si más bien se habla de derechos y pocas veces nosotros hablamos de la responsabilidades como persona con VIH yo tengo la responsabilidad de acudir con mis citas médicas y tomar mis medicamentos de protegerme y proteger a los demás cuadno tengo una relación sexual.”


Further in the newscast we will speak to Castellanos about the stigma and discrimination that people living with HIV face daily.
