By Emmanuel Omona PaOkech

The acting chairperson for  the Strengthening Advocacy for Networking HIV/Aids Response (SANAR) in Gulu, Francis Omony has advocated to the different HIV service providers to create a data base that will help truck on the clients who are enrolled on Anti-Retro-viral drugs to avoid double counting.

Omony claims that many of the HIV/AIDS patients have been getting treatments from different places at the same time.

Omony says , this could cause challenges to  HIVAIDs Patients and the centres where they get treatment from.

“If they continue to get treatments from different centres, then they will either confuse the health workers”, Omony said.

Omony who was speaking to residents of Layibi in Gulu town said that the reason they have decided to form a coordinating centre is to avoid such challenges.

Omony also encouraged the HIVAIDS Patients to always get enough support from their family members and Village Health Teams.
