Poor mental health functioning among persons living with HIV (PLHIV) has gained considerable attention particularly in low-income countries that disproportionately carry the global HIV/AIDS burden. Fewer studies, however, have examined the relationship between poverty indicators and mental health among PHLIV in India. Based on this cross-sectional study of 196 HIV-seropositive adults who received medical services at Shalom AIDS Project in Delhi, India, structural equation modeling and mediation analysis were employed to estimate the associations between poverty indices (household asset index, food security, unemployment, water treatment, sanitation), HIV-health factors (illness in the past 3 months, co-morbid medical conditions), and psychological distress. In the final model, ownership of fewer household assets was associated with higher levels of food insecurity, which in turn was associated with higher psychological distress. Also, the household asset index, food insecurity, and unemployment had a larger effect on psychological distress than new opportunistic infections. These findings build on increasing evidence that support concerted efforts to design, evaluate, and refine HIV mental health interventions that are mainstreamed with livelihood programming in high poverty regions in India.

Are you afraid of the dark? If so, you wouldn’t have liked living in the tiny hamlet of Piprahi in the Panna district of Madyha Pradesh. Cut off and excluded, the dalit villagers had been waiting to be connected to the electricity grid for 2 years but thanks to the work of PACS and partner EHA, a Village Watch Committee was established and supported to submit a an official complaint. Just days later they had light. Buoyed by their success, they’re not stopping there!
In the villages of Bihar, India, poverty is rife and girls like Seema are married young. They don't get the care they need during pregnancy. As a result, the lives of these child-mothers and babies are put in jeopardy.
You can Send a Light this Advent and Christmas to bring hope and life into places filled with darkness.
You can do this by:
- Sharing the stories of child-mothers.
- Praying for the dedicated Christian healthcare workers who care for them.
- Reflecting on the Bible's message of light and hope.
- Collecting throughout advent to make a life-giving gift this Christmas.
- Book a speaker from EMMS International to come and share the stories of child-mothers.
