4. Dr. Talla Sandrine Valerie
I had the privilege to come to IDI just after I completed my medical training and one year of internship at Olabisi Onabanjo
University in Ogun state Nigeria.
The training at IDI was a complete package I was given a solid foundation on the subject of HIV and Antiretroviral therapy. I also had the opportunity to visit different Institutions which offer comprehensive HIV care in Uganda. For the first time, I was introduced to the subject of Palliative medicine. Little did I know that this information will be vital as I was about to start my career as a physician
Presently, I work in one of the five HIV Treatment Centers of the Cameroon Baptist Convention Health Board. We have about 1,223 patients on ARVs.
The training at IDI has been of great help to me. I have been able to share my knowledge with the colleagues working with me. I have remained in contact with ATIC which continues to help me in managing challenging cases. I now enjoy working on HIV infected patients not only confidently but passionately based on that which I was taught.
One year ago, I went back to Uganda to broaden my knowledge on palliative care at Hospice Africa Uganda. That made my practice of HIV medicine complete.
I sincerely thank the staff of IDI and Hospice Africa Uganda for the great job they are doing.
