(4/19/2008)

Boehringer Ingelheim Indonesia has provided funding for the first antiretroviral therapy adherence counseling program in Indonesia operated by the Foundation for Health in Bali (Yakeba). The Rp. 45 million (US$4,900) grant will cover a six-month period and assist 150 HIV/AIDS sufferers in Bali to ensure that they adhere to antiretroviral drug therapy programs(ARV).

Yakeba is a non-government organization (NGO) working to decrease the spread of HIV/AIDS in Bali with a special emphasis on working with intravenous drug users (IDU) and their partners. Yakeba also supports a people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWA), again focusing on IDU.

Yakeba estimates that there are 2,500 IDU and an estimated 3,000 PLWA in Bali. Of these 3,000 PLWA, only some 300 are using antiretroviral Therapy (ARV) medications that can inhibit the reproduction of HIV.

Among the ongoing programs conducted by Yakeba to fight the spread of HIV/AIDS in Bali include:

A Needle Exchange Program

A Used Needle Disposal Program

A Free Condom Distribution Program

A Voluntary Counseling & Testing (VCT) Program for those wishing to know their HIV status

A Team of Outreach Workers who distribute needles, information and who refer IDU to VCT and a number of health services

A Peer-driven Support Program for IDU

A Peer-driven Support Program for IDU living with HIV/AIDS
