In Ukraine, currently, there are only seven day care centres that provide special treatment and care services to HIV-positive children and that are in fully satisfactory functional order, and few other places that are at the initial state of development. The programmes available at these centres are developed upon the models of best international practices and crucial for bringing up a healthy and self asserted generation, capable of entering into adult life. However, the important lack of financing for such programmes, as well as funds for centres themselves to manage these programmes, reduce their effectiveness and minimise the prospects to develop and implement the nation wide strategy for HIV-positive children’s treatment and care.
The All-Ukrainian PLWHA Network (the Network thereafter), as a national organisation that stands at the roots of every initiative to help HIV-positive people in need, especially children as they are less likely to stand for their own rights, organises a fundraising event in order to support financially the urgent needs of such centres insuring their growth and sustainability.
The Network has done a mapping of the centres available as well as their deficits and needs. Amount donated during the event will provide at least the urgent needs of such centres. The Network keeps the good faith in people’s generosity and willingness to help children.
