What our clients are saying

“I was diagnosed with HIV and TB a year ago. With a fast deteriorating condition, I resorted to using herbal drugs. However, my condition worsened, and I ended up on admission in a private hospital. The Doctor at this hospital, directed me to IHCC. Initially skeptical about going, it took some time before I made the first visit. I was very surprised by the way I was warmly received and taken through counseling that took away my doubts and fears about living with HIV. Through the encouragement and continuous support of the IHCC staff especially the model of Hope, I completed my tuberculosis treatment and was put on ARVs. Today I am healthy, I have gained my weight back and most of all I am happy and see a great future ahead of me. Thanks to IHCC.”

“I had been on treatment for some years with IHCC and although I loved the staff and the entire place very much, I am not sure how I was convinced by some of these herbal people that I could be cured of my HIV. It was the biggest mistake I made, defaulting from treatment at IHCC. What surprised me more was that, even though I had decided to try my luck with herbal treatment, the counselor at IHCC would call on me from time to time to still check up on me. After being on herbal treatment, which cost me a lot of money for a while, seeing that I may have been duped, I decided, when I had lost so much weight to return to IHCC. I had heard of bad encounters from others who had done same as I had done and had had to go back to their initial health facilities. The stories they shared were not very encouraging. However, unlike those horrible stories of being insulted once one who had defaulted returned to care, I was welcomed with open arms back to IHCC. Today I am alive, healthy and looking good thanks to their excellent care.”

“I struggled to accept my HIV status when I was diagnosed five years ago and therefore resorted to prayer camps and the use of herbal drugs, some of which were very expensive, costing as much as GHS2000.00. Without any improvement however, my sister-in-law who knew about my status directed me to IHCC. Initially I did not want to go for fear of being scolded or shouted at, things that we commonly hear about. When I could no longer stay away from care, I made a visit to IHCC, where I was welcomed and counselled about my condition. I was given so much hope once told that If I took my medication, I could get better. It has been 7months now, and I am doing very well. I do not fall sick frequently as I used to before and I am very happy with myself and everything else. The services were also very affordable compared to other places. I am grateful to IHCC.”

Madame S.A.I31 years

“I had found out about my HIV status when my husband fell very ill. Very confused about what had overcome me, I went into complete denial. I knew however that I would have to seek treatment one day however, I continued to push this away out of fear and shame. When I started to notice my cloths getting bigger for me, I knew if I did not do something, I would be in for big trouble. I went online just trying my luck, not in the least thinking I would stumble upon the West Africa AIDS Foundation site. Once I did and noticed that they had an affiliated clinic, I immediately called. The way I was talked to on the phone motivated me to visit them on my appointment day. I could not have wished for anything better. The way I was handled, it just felt like I had seroconverted to being HIV negative. I was so happy I found this place. I have been receiving care from them ever since and what I love most is how they ensure they meet my needs no matter what. They are realty the best thing that happened to me.”
