Supporting HIV/TB CTR Services
A two-and-a-half-year project funded by the Gauteng Department of Health for the period October 2021 to March 2024 is being rolled out to provide marginalized communities and vulnerable groups with much needed counselling, testing, and referral (CTR) services to mitigate HIV/AIDS, STIs, and TB (HAST) in the target areas.
- The project is designed to raise awareness and mobilize communities to access HAST counselling-and-testing services at mobile sites and to provide referrals to local health facilities for antiretroviral initiation/re-initiation and voluntary medical male circumcision.
- The catchment area of the project is Region E (Alexandra township and surrounding locations) of the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality with a focus on high transmission areas such as migrant hostels, brothels, taxi ranks, taverns, informal and low-income settlements.
The project team prides itself in reaching out to communities and population groups who are liable to be left out of mainstream health care and in so doing plays a critical role in contributing to the UNAIDS 95-95-95 “treatment for all” strategy as well as in the prevention of HIV transmissions and re-infections through the U=U framework.
