  3. Current medical status requires hospitalisation / medical treatment /surgery as a direct result of HIV or AIDS related illnesses – and which can legitimately show that financial support is needed.
  4. Recently unemployed and in urgent need of funds for immediate living expenses as a result of newly diagnosed HIV status and / or illness.

  5. Medicines and drugs not covered by Government allotments – shown to be needed as a result of HIV/AIDS related illnesses and conditions.

In the event that the board is unable to meet to review the application, an emergency fund is to be made available, to be issued/used at the discretion of any single member of the executive board to the value of Rp 1.500.000.
