Traditional herbs again

6a

This 53-year old from Mahushu is HIV- and TB-positive, and he is bedridden and having strong diarrhea.  He is not drinking his treatment because he believes in traditional herbs. He is drinking the herbs and during the day he stays alone because his wife is working. He vomits, his feet are swollen and his eyes are yellow. He is living in a one room RDP house.

We encouraged him to drink his treatment well and on a regular basis, and we gave him pampers, linen savers, gloves, musk, savlon and we called an ambulance for him.
