Independent Online

Johannesburg – The Gauteng department of health welcomed on Wednesday an HIV and Aids study by the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC)

“The MEC (for Health Hope Papo) said the report… tells a good story about the work of the public sector health services and the multisectoral response to HIV in the province,” spokesman Simon Zwane said.

He said more people living with HIV are living longer because of the large ARV treatment programme, which was offered in most clinics and hospitals of Gauteng.
