20 Million tested for aids is certainly an achievement but when you only have a third of your 6 Million aids population receiving ARVs, or medication for aids, that is letting down the other 4 Million aids sufferers. In 2012 SA had an estimated 370 000 new HIV infections and 240 000 Aids deaths, a net growth of 130 000 aids sufferers. As some observe, we have little to celebrate on the 25th Annual Aids Day.
Direct Democracy Forum policies will have a significant effect on the fight against aids and the quality of life for all aids sufferers in South Africa.
DDF TEAL policies’ support of DDF Health Policies will ensure that every AIDS sufferer in South Africa receives ARVs, which will allow them to live a largely normal lifestyle and lifespan and DDF job creation policies and DDF education and training policies will uplift the social and economic status of most South Africans, which will significantly reduce the transmission of AIDS between South Africans of all ages.
The buck stops at the ballot box
