South Africa’s HIV/Aids treatment programme is in a state of disarray, and could result in the deaths of thousands of people dependent on it for life-prolonging drugs.
This is actually unconscionable: given that SA was doing so well, with the largest number of people in any country on ARVs, to fail them now is to completely discredit our health system – and our government.
Seriously: why do we have a problem? First, failures in local and national government; second, indefensible behaviour by local government and others in intimidating whistle-blowers, rather than dealing with the problem at hand.
