Lesotho Network of AIDS Service Organizations (LENASO)
LENASO has planned to conduct awareness raising activities in small groups in different villages while following COVID-19 precautions. The awareness raising activities will be led by community support groups in each village and will advocate for Universal Health Coverage to promote access to health services by all. They will particularly push more on Community ART distribution- a new model of care adopted to improve retention in care among patients with HIV in Lesotho. Community ART Distribution also helps patients to reduce costs of transportation to health facilities and protects them from further exposure to COVID-19. Realising the challenges that were brought by COVID-19 to health care service delivery especially to people living with HIV and other chronic illnesses, LENASO finds it imperative to advocate for UHC and access to health services. The awreness raising activity is thus planned to make much more noise so that our government could hear and support the initiative.
