My HIV/AIDS Work Experience.

I have been as a Medical Officer In Charge of HIV/AIDS for the last five years.My work has been very challenging.

My real experience reveals that most of the HIV/AIDS related mortality are due to lack of knowledge in the community and lack of empowerment of HIV/AIDS infected persons.

Long term care for HIV/AIDS is likely to fail in future if the community and women are not empowered with knowledge.

It has also been very encouraging to see my patients on care restoring their lives and becoming economically productive.

I hope we will be able to share our positive and negative experiences here on PulseWire,and come up with workable solutions especially on the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

Thank you.

Dickson Atonga.

What wonderful work

Dickson,

It sounds like you are doing wonderful things. I would love to hear some of your success stories and it sounds like you have many. I wonder if you would share some with us.

Knowledge is power and and in itself is great preventative medicine. I bet you would have a lot to contribute to the PulseWire HIV/AIDS networking zone (http://beta.pulsewire.net/groups/598) and I hope to see you there.

In friendship,

Jenna Kellam

Thank you for the invitation,Jenna.

Thank you for the invitation Jenna,to the Women's Networking Zone.I have already joined this group! I am glad to see the members here working actively on HIV/AIDS issues.

I have alot of success stories to share.Since i started my work five years ago i have been working on HIV/AIDS.Many of my patients have died,which has been very sad.But my joy lies on those patients who have come back to their feet and are now productive in life.

I have experienced further success by having my own patients who were once dying advocating here at the grassroots successfully,and making full use of their potentials.Now i wish they were computer literate to come and share and gain on PulseWire.

I will also share with this community the hardships i undergo as a doctor with limited facilities for my work in service to people with limited resources.Still,i do my best to give the best affordable prescriptions to my patients,and when they get well,i count it as a big blessing and achievement,in my work and my community.

In friendship,

Dickson.
