About the Wegen AIDS Talkline
Individuals can call Wegen AIDS Talkline at "952" to access free and anonymous HIV/AIDS information, counseling and referrals. Dissemination of information through the talkline equip individuals with the necessary knowledge to protect themselves from HIV, practice positive living if already HIV positive, encourage greater uptake of HIV counseling and testing, and support Ethiopians access and adhere to antiretroviral therapy. The referral component enables individuals to maneuver through the complex network of HIV/AIDS service providers and access the necessary information, care and support services they need. By providing ongoing counseling services, Wegen creates an enabling environment for those infected and affected by the virus to come to terms with it, manage undue stress, find ongoing support through referrals and improve their overall emotional well-being.
