MSF Nurse, Roma Paryani, assisting a MDR TB patient at MSF’s clinic in Mumbai.
Since February 2006, MSF has been running a clinic in the Khar district in North Mumbai, providing free comprehensive care and treatment for HIV patients. The clinic is focused on providing comprehensive care to HIV positive patients who have been excluded by the public health system due to social or clinical reasons. The clinic also offers treatment to patients that are co-infected with Hepatitis B or multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR TB). Meetings providing psychosocial support are held regularly, featuring group activities, discussions and sharing of experiences. Special support groups are also held for children.
