New Kenya killer
« on: February 15, 2008, 09:05:28 AM »
A Kenyan woman crouches in a tent by the only possession she retrieved when she fled her home last month - a brown-paper bag packed with HIV drugs.

"I was told by gangs that I was going to be raped because I am Kikuyu. That's why I left my house and came to this camp," she says about the attack on her slum home in the capital, Nairobi.

"This was the only thing I was able to carry from my house, because I know what it means to miss these drugs," she says, pointing towards the packs of different medicines.

They may help save her life but with just one meal a day, she is unable to tolerate the medication. She is so weak, she can hardly stand up, and so the temptation to skip a dose is huge.

Out of 600,000 people who have been displaced in Kenya's post-election violence, 15,000 are HIV-positive.

Tip of the iceberg

Many depend on anti-retrovirals drugs to survive. It is a complicated regime and many need close medical supervision.

Yet in some clinics, a fifth of patients have failed to turn up, and that could be just the tip of the iceberg.
