Bridges of Hope Socioeconomic Reintegration Project

Report of a Follow-Up Survey with Clients Living with HIV and AIDS

Maryknoll started the Bridges of Hope project in 2004 to help people living with HIV, who had been marginalized due to their illness, to reintegrate into society after regaining their health with antiretroviral therapy. Bridges provides group and family counseling, basic training for managing a small business, apprenticeships, job placements, vocational training, small grants, health education, reconciliation with estranged families, and other services that clients need to transition from being dependent upon project assistance to supporting themselves. The Bridges project conducted a follow-up survey in October–November 2006 to understand how bridged clients were faring medically, economically, and socially after returning to unassisted living.
