FAQ

1. Who is a CLHIV?

CLHIV is an acronym for Children Living with HIV.

2. What is the difference between Children infected with HIV and children affected with HIV?

Children infected with HIV are who carry the HIV virus in them and are vulnerable because of that and Children affected with HIV are whose parents carry the virus but have not transmitted the virus to the children. They are also equally vulnerable like the HIV infected because of orphanhood and lack of parental care.

3. How do the children get infected with HIV?

Most of the children are infected through vertical transmission from the mother at the time of the birth or in the postnatal stage.

4. Can the child be born without HIV even if the mother is infected with HIV?

The child can be born HIV negative if the mother is identified as HIV positive and if the delivery takes place in a hospital.

5. Is there a permanent cure to HIV/AIDS?

Not at the moment.

6. What is ART?

ART is the acronym for Anti Retro-viral Therapy. It is a medicine or combination of medicine for improving the life span of HIV infected people/children.

7. What is the life Span of these Children?

We cannot really predict the life span of these children at the moment. It depends on the comprehensiveness and quality of care they receive at home/care centre.

8. Who is funding your organization?

We do not have a major funder/project for the organization. We run this organization through people’s contribution and fundraising events.  

9. How do the children come to the centre?

Most of the children are referred by people/institution who works in this sector. We have a strict admission protocol and we prefer to admit children who are orphaned or whose lives are at risk in a familial and community setting. The children are admitted on the basis of primary assessment carried out by the person/institution which referred, post screening of the assessment and actual home visit by the staff.

10. Is there any religious/faith criteria in the admission of children?

Though the institution is managed by a Catholic Faith based organization we admit children from all religions and communities. 

 11. Is Sneha Care Home an Orphanage?

We don’t prefer to call it as an orphanage, though most of the children we care for are orphans. We would rather call it as a residential school.
