home side underway as it stretched its unbeaten run in the league to six games Hamburg’s Gideon Jung gave away the spot kick in the 16th minute with a clumsy challenge on Yevhen Konoplyanka The visitors pushed hard for an equalizer and went closest before the hour-mark when Aaron Hunt struck the post after being brilliantly played through by the 17-year-old Jann-Fiete Arp Hamburg’s hopes of an equalizer were effectively ended when Konoplyanka set up Burgstaller to seal it with around 10 minutes remaining That score pushed Schalke ahead of Leipzig on goal difference Both sides trail Bayern Munich by six points after 12 rounds “The table isn’t that important after 12 match days We’re not concerned with it It’s very tight at the top” said Schalke coach Domenico Tedesco His side

call out “HIV wale HIV wale” The 31-year-old though looks straight ahead ignoring the remarks For the next four hours between 11 am and 3 pm he and six other men will walk through the narrow serpentine alleys of the densely populated slum looking for single migrant men a “high-risk” group for contracting HIV They have a tough target — convincing 50 men to walk with them towards a screening camp near the slum and get tested for HIV Babli and his team form the many cogs of a large wheel that will work overtime to “end the AIDS epidemic by 2030” a difficult target set by the UN on October 30 Besides mobile camps such as this one in Govandi the National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO) has decided to set up permanent camps at certain locations The mobile camps are set up four times a month each screening high-risk individuals such as sex workers migrants drug users truck drivers men having sex with men and construction labourers The Govandi slum has some 15000 migrant labourers mostly from UP Bihar and Nepal who live in matchbox-size rooms Harish Singh tries to convince migrant workers at the Govandi slum to get themselves tested (Express Photo by Narendra Vaskar) Indraprasad Ranamagar Babli’s Nepali co-worker walks inside a dingy zari workshop where seven men are carefully stitching silver embroidery on swathes of fabric Four of them having been tested for HIV at previous screening camps Ranamnagar tries to convince the other three to walk down to the camp “Do you know what HIV is” he asks 25-year-old Shravan Kumar a migrant from Lucknow who has been working and living at the zari workshop since he was 16 Shravan nods in affirmation But he doesn’t want to be tested “I have never been in a relation with any woman Why should I go for the test” he replies Ranamagar attempts to educate him about the other ways the virus spreads such as blood transfusion but Shravan is adamant “I will have to come back to convince Shravan” he says Convincing is a long process In fact it begins a few days before the screening camp is set up Field workers spend a few days meeting people identifying local leaders and using their help to get friendly with migrant labourers “We tell them how HIV spreads and that it is not something to be ashamed of We make them understand the need to stay fit for their family” says Harish Singh a field worker and counsellor Migrant workers also worry that if they test positive for HIV and if their employers find out they’d be fired Babli talks of a migrant worker who had told his employer about his co-worker’s HIV positive status after the tests were conducted “The employer asked him to look for work elsewhere People still feel the disease spreads by living or eating together” he says Some like a tailor from Bihar who had tested positive a month ago leave the city of their own will “It took me days to bring him to the camp where he tested positive Three days after he was told to visit a NACO-run Anti Retroviral Treatment (ART) clinic he quit his job and returned to his village” says Singh who has been unsuccessfully trying to track him through ART clinics in Bihar “He has given me a wrong number” he says It’s 1 pm and Singh Babli and Ranamagar have managed to get six men to the camp They escort each one of them to the van that holds the screening camp lest the men change their mind The camp has a doctor a lab technician and a counsellor (Express Photo by Narendra Vaskar) The van has three cubicles — one for the doctor one for the lab technician and another for the counsellor For each of the six men the field workers fill up a form with personal details such as home address so that the migrant can be tracked for treatment in case he returns to his village after testing HIV-positive Then a doctor asks them about any illnesses they may have and gives them medicines Thereafter a lab technician collects their blood samples the results of which come out in 20 minutes As they wait for the results each of the six men is taken to the counsellor who advises them on the use of condoms and tells them to visit an ART clinic in case they test positive A CD4 count is then taken at the ART centre — if it is less than 350 the patient is put on daily treatment; else a six-monthly test is prescribed All six men test negative and return to their homes The field workers go back to the slums looking for more labourers willing to get tested Meanwhile a 34-year-old Nepali migrant who has been living in Mumbai for 20 years walks into the camp He had tested positive for HIV in 2012 and since then he says makes it a point to visit camps whenever they are held He tells the doctors he has a CD4 count of 298 and is also suffering from tuberculosis After he was diagnosed with the virus he called off his wedding which was scheduled to be held two months later and got fired from a building where he worked as a watchman He now sleeps at the railway station “I haven’t gone home since I was diagnosed with HIV But now I will there is no life here” he says Two out of 10 men do not return after testing positive in Govandi says Babli The van is parked next to a landfill site where ragpickers rummage through garbage They too says Babli belong to the high-risk category “Their working conditions are tough and they are usually high on Iodex whitener or cough syrups” he says But they can’t be tested as “alcohol or addictive substances in the blood can impact the results” he says A dozen curious teenagers gather around the camp but are shooed away “NACO guidelines do not permit testing of under eighteens at camps unless a guardian is willing to sign for them With parents living in faraway villages the boys form a significant proportion of undetected HIV cases” says Ram Bahadur NACO project director at Govandi NACO figures show that children under 15 account for seven per cent (145 lakh) of total infections Babli who is paid a monthly salary of Rs 12000 has been working as a field worker for HIV awareness since 2004 first with Tata Institute of Social Sciences then in Mankhurd slums and now with NACO in Govandi In a decade the rise in his salary has been sluggish Since April till November this year the health workers say they have received salary for only four months From a team of 12 they have shrunk to seven “Which is why we never meet our target of 50 screenings in a camp How can they expect us to meet the 2030 target” he says Of the 15000 estimated migrant workers in Govandi only 3000 have been screened since 2012 This year annual funds for the screening programme were cut down from Rs 18 lakh to Rs 12 lakh “We use the funds to pay off salaries for travelling counselling and camps If the government provides even the current budget on time we may survive” Bahadur says Despite cuts several health workers pay poor HIV patients for food from their own pockets “We need to maintain a rapport with them Otherwise they will discontinue their treatment” says Kumar It is 245 pm and the camp is winding up “Twenty two men screened today all negative” says Kumar as he scans the handwritten list Just then the project manager’s phone rings “The accountant found another job She wants to quit” he says It is the seventh resignation in a year For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Express News
