Great to see that you are on this website and showing interest in what remains a really serious issue throughout Indonesia.
We have worked in Bali since 1993 and started Bali Kids in 2005. Bali Kids was set up to provide medical/dental care and health education. Our staff travels to the remote villages, disabled centers and 'orphanages' five or six times a week.
We treat and educate the kids on site. Those who cannot be treated on site can stay at our Medical Center in Bali until they are well enough to return home.
Shortly after starting the project, we also got kids with HIV. No one else was offering holistic care for HIV+ kids at the time, so we realized that we needed to fill this gap.
We have access to over 10.000 kids here in Bali, which is of course only the tip of the iceberg. But at least, these children are aware of the risks and have close contact with the Bali Kids medical team if they need to talk or feel they may have been exposed to the HIV virus.
We care for kids with cancer, tuberculosis and other serious health issues, however our highest priority is given to kids affected by HIV.
I cannot say that all the young people we talk to follow our advice. We know for a fact that some do not, but at least we have been pro-active in giving the information and they can make an informed decision about safe sex.
I hope that Indonesian kids will realize just how serious HIV is and LISTEN to our advice and SUPPORT the website www.indonesiaagainstaids.com.
DAA does a fantastic job and we are very happy and proud to be a partner of DAA. Our world would be in a much better place if there were more people such as the DAA team making an effort to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS all over the world.
Enjoy life and protect yourself!
Wishing you well
