The Masstrust programme, funded by MAP for more than 10 years, provides medical follow-up to 150 families in 96 villages in Dindigul district. HIV-positive families are often unwilling to take appropriate treatment for fear of being excluded from the world of work and facing constant discrimination. It is therefore a rigorous work of sensitisation and accompaniment that the team must provide not only to these families, but also at the level of entire villages to change the perception of people affected by HIV. Five Health Outreach Workers provide essential medical care on a daily basis, ensuring that appropriate antiretroviral and triple therapy is taken. But beyond this care, these women provide crucial emotional support, having themselves experienced the stigma and discrimination associated with AIDS.
