To teach about diseases Progression and positive livings.
Manuela went to Bukoma to teach about diseases Progression and positive living and co factors. This lesson was aimed at educating community members that HIV varies and in stages and how people should stay when they are HIV positive.
When Manuela reached the village, she only found one person seated at the meeting place, she greeted them and asked him where are the rest, he replied that they are coming, Manuela decided to move around demobilizing the nearby neighbors to come and learn. When Manuela came back after that move, she found only three people at the meeting place, she told the members around that she is giving them only two weeks if they don’t change she will stop coming to that village because she sees like you don’t have interest. The members around said that no no no we shall change.
As she was talking , some members came like 12 people, Manuela went ahead and taught them but she was not happy as she was teaching, she started by asking them about the previous lesson, only two people responded, the rest were just quite, Manuela went on and introduced to them the lessons, she started by asking them to list all activities that can lead to HIV infection they said that basing on what taught them on how HIV is transmitted from one person to another means that for some one to get HIV there must be direct contact with uninfected person where there is postal of entry and infected fluids that was so good Manuela was happy with that man. The rest of the participants said that HIV can get through hanging , seating together, greeting and eating together.
After Manuela took them through the disease Progression, Manuela said HIV has three stages for example window period which is the period between infection and the time a person started developing signs and symptoms associated with HIV. This period can last for 10 to 15. Manuela went on and told them that during this period, the person is too infectious . incubation period this is a period between infection and development of disease associated with HIV, during this period if the person is not serious he or she may progress to HIV stage but that person start talking medication Eerily enough, he may progress to Honeymoon period which is the stage where a person is now living in harmony with HIV positive person because he or she is taking care of him self.
Manuela went on and asked them about positive living and behavior, that what should HIV positive person to in order to live longer, they said that person need to eat well, taking medication in time, retreating the sexually transmitted disease, having enough rest, Manuela also added that they should be faithfully to their partners and using condoms all the time.
Finally, though participants were few, but they were so active and participative and Manuela loved her class, she told them to tell their fellows if they don’t come next time she stop the program.
