Teen Club sessions

While lauding teen clubs, ALHIV in FGDs, particularly those participating in teen clubs not linked to ART clinic, indicated that there was potential for greater benefits if certain clinical services such as treatment of minor ailments and ART refills were offered during teen club sessions. Evidently, a participant from Mhuju health facility in Rumphi remarked:

“…some of us come from far…..and it is not easy to get here, we have to walk and it’s difficult, that’s why we want to be getting our medication the same day we come for teen clubs because we have fixed days for teen clubs and everyone knows that we all have to attend, sometimes we come for teen club but then have to come again to collect medicines, it would be better if such services were integrated.
