The United Nations agency, UNAIDS, says South Africa needs to urgently come up with…

The United Nations agency, UNAIDS, says South Africa needs to urgently come up with a new plan to dealing with HIV infections in young girls. Currently ten young girls are infected with HIV in South Africa every hour. UNAIDS country director in South Africa, Doctor Mbulawa Mugabe, has been speaking at the national imbizo of religious and traditional leaders in Sandton,north of Johannesburg. “In SA today, we have 10 new infections per hour among adolescent girls and young women. We have 240 new infections per day among adolescent girls and young women and we have almost close to 1700 new infections per week in this group and 88 000 per year. That’s the situation we are dealing with”, said Mugabe.

  1. Now what are you going or can do about this anyway? The onus is on the people themselves not to engage in unprotected sex….there’s nothing the doctors, nurses or government can do if the women are careless and open themselves up to contracting HIV. Even in the case of rape where the women cannot help it if they are infected, there’s still nothing anyone can do…..

  2. Shocking. Awareness about Pre exposure prophylaxis, post exposure prophylaxis and treatment as prevention strategies information should be widely disseminated to the public and our young girls should be empowered. This is sad

  3. South Africa has done it wrong in the first place by stigmatising this deadly virus now everyone has an anger once they contract it and want to spread it
    Instead of living a healthy life
    Why signing consent for screening of HIV
    But no consent for Diabetes mellitus , haemoglibin and alles hay cah something is cooking in the oven
    Unstigmatise HIV please its a virus that can be managable but not cured like any other chronic illnesses
