UNITED IN THE FIGHT AGAINST HIV/AIDS AND REMEMBERING THOSE WHO HAVE PASSED ON DUE TO THE ILLNESS

The Deputy Minister of Human Settlements, Zou Kota-Fredericks and members of the community from Dunoon, Joe Slovo Park, Summer Greens and Milnerton will participate in a Health walk as a symbol of solidarity and commitment to the fight against HIV/Aids.

The Health walk, under the theme: “My Right to Know My Status, Prevention is My Responsibility” which links to the global theme “The Right to Health” is aimed at breaking the stigma associated with HIV/Aids, Tuberculosis and to encourage an active citizenry where everyone enjoys their basic human right, including access to healthy living environments.
