Of course. What started me on this was a young mother who's partner was HIV+ and despite educating her on how to keep herself from becoming positive she appeared in the clinic pregnant.We delivered the child, who so far is testing negative. She could not afford a sterilization, she agreed to have one and we took on the cost.We still tried to help her understand how to prevent herself from becoming positive.Last thing San Mateo needs is another sick child born to that community.
We are not working for GOB and will sterilize any woman who wants it.
When the HIV committee passed out condoms to the High School and during their parade, there were objections from the religious elders. Hence, we do this quietly.
