Mohnyin, 13 May— As of the first week of May, patients with HIV/ AIDS will be given healthcare delivery at Mohnyin district hospital on every Tuesdays, said Dr Win Win Htay, medical superintend of the hospital, on 5 May. “Mohnyin township has about 500 HIV-infected patients. Some of them are unwilling to mention their names and declare their positive status. Moreover, most of them are unwilling to undergo HIV testing and receive medical care in Myitkyina as they are poor and cannot afford to spend money on one night’s stay at Myitkyina.

So, Christian association council in Mohnyin have to cover the trip expense. Now, it will be convenient for them who will be provided with healthcare delivery at Mohnyin hospital.”, Dr Rolan who is leading Mitta Foundation helping positive patients in the township.
